BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – A Venezuelan Su-30 fighter jet reportedly intercepted two U.S. military aircraft that approached their national airspace.

“A few hours ago, the Su-30MK2 fighter was urgently raised into the air on combat alert, the reason for which was the approach of two American military aircraft to the borders of Venezuela. A Russian-made fighting vehicle successfully dealt with two potential intruders at once,” the Russian publication Avia.Pro reported.

Citing unnamed sources, the publication said two U.S. aircraft took off from a military base in Puerto Rico and approached the territorial borders of Venezuela, which prompted the Venezuelan Air Force to get involved.

“TheSu-30MK2 fighter was raised to intercept them, which not only intercepted potential violators, but also successfully cracked down on two planes at once, forcing the latter to retreat,” they added.

A video circulating on social media shows the alleged footage of the Venezuelan Su-30 flying over the Barcelona region of Venezuela.

Blah, blah, just like with F-22 meeting Russian Il-38 away from Alaska’s cost, this is no “interception”, just visual recognition of aircraft entering the ADIZ.
Note that an ADIZ is absolutely international airspace, it’s just an area where, when an unidentified aircraft enters, you send a patrol for identification purposes…
Forcing to retreat? C’mon! You don’t force a jet-fighter to “retreat” like a night-club bouncer : either you enter a fight or you don’t, period!

This was in Venezuela not Colombia. Colombia is the country with the narco president that provides the CIA and DEA with drugs. Of course only idiots and shills say or write otherwise.
