The US Air Force and National Guard pilots shot down an unidentified flying object over Lake Huron, Michigan, which has led to concerns about North American security and strained relations with China. Earlier, in January, a large Chinese balloon that was claimed to be conducting weather research was shot down by an F-22 jet off the South Carolina coast. On Friday, US fighter jets took down another object within US airspace over US territorial water, and on Saturday, a “high-altitude airborne object” was shot down over Canada’s central Yukon Territory, posing a threat to civilian flights. The Canadian Defense Minister did not speculate on the origin of the object, described as cylindrical and smaller than the initial balloon.
On Sunday, US President Joe Biden reportedly ordered warplanes to shoot down an unidentified object over Lake Huron as a precautionary measure. According to a senior administration official, this action was taken “out of an abundance of caution” to ensure the safety and security of the United States. The official did not provide further details on the nature of the object or its origin, and it is not clear whether the object posed an actual threat or was simply deemed suspicious. This incident comes amid growing concerns about national security and potential threats to US airspace, including from foreign powers such as China.
