Prince Harry participates in Taliban operation, allegedly kills militant
Rumors have quickly spread claiming Britain’s Prince Harry killed a Taliban militant for the first time when he participated in an operation to rescue another team which had come under attack, the United Kingdom’s daily Telegraph has reported.
Defense sources reportedly confirmed Prince Harry had deployed his weaponry while on operations, but denied other claims that the prince had killed a militant.
“He is a soldier and soldiers do what they are required to do,” Harry’s spokesman said, adding that at the time of his deployment killing Taliban militants was “not an issue at all.”
Prince Harry arrived at an Afghanistan military base in September where he serves as the gunner and navigator in an Apache attack helicopter for the Army Air Corps.
