Prince Harry says he killed 25 in Afghanistan

According to a soon-to-be-published autobiography, Prince Harry has admitted to killing 25 people while operating an Apache chopper in Afghanistan, according to British media on Thursday.

The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex performed two tours of service in combat with the Taliban, first in 2007–2008 as a forward air controller ordering airstrikes and then in 2012–2013 as an attack helicopter pilot.

He claimed that he flew six missions as a pilot, which resulted in his “taking human life,” in the book “Spare,” which will be released next week, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Eliminating the targets, according to him, was like removing “chess pieces” from a board, and he claimed that he was neither proud nor ashamed of doing so.

Harry, who served in the British Army for ten years and attained the rank of captain, has said that his time in the military was formative.

For security considerations, his first visit was done under a severe news blackout that was approved by British media sources. When a foreign magazine violated the embargo, he was compelled to return home.

How many Taliban he killed are unknown to the public.

He was able to evaluate his operations and precisely count the number of people he had killed thanks to video cameras that were mounted on the Apache helicopter’s nose.

“My number is 25. It’s not a number that fills me with satisfaction, but nor does it embarrass me,” he wrote.

He defended his conduct by recalling the 9/11 attacks in the United States and by speaking with the relatives of the victims.

Fighting them was an act of retaliation for a crime against humanity since the perpetrators and their supporters were “enemies of humanity,” he continued.
