The Taliban administration has sworn that Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, will one day testify before the International Court about the deaths of 25 Afghan soldiers.
Prince Harry acknowledged in his autobiography, Spare, that as an Apache chopper pilot during the conflict, he killed Afghan fighters.
He described how, during his second deployment in Afghanistan, he flew six missions and killed 25 Taliban.
In response to the information, the police spokesman for the Taliban, Khalid Zadran, said that just as Harry will always be remembered in Helmand, Afghans will never forget the massacre of their innocent people.
According to Zadran, criminals like Harry who boldly admit their crimes will be brought before the international community and the perpetrators of such crimes will one day stand trial before an international court, according to The Telegraph.
The Prince’s description of those he had killed as “chess pieces” and his assertion that he was “neither ashamed nor proud” of his deeds were “cruel, barbaric,” according to the Taliban’s police spokesman, and such statements had legitimized the Taliban’s deadly insurgency against NATO troops in Afghanistan.
“Harry and others’ cruel and inhumane acts incited the Afghan populace, which resulted in an armed insurrection against them. This kind of revolt is what we refer to as holy jihad, he said.
