Prince Harry Afghanistan Claim: Prince Harry has also faced severe backlash from UK politicians and army veterans over the claim.

Iran accused Prince Harry of committing a “war crime” after the Duke of Sussex admitted in his memoir that he killed 25 Taliban fighters during his time in Afghanistan. Iran also slammed the UK saying that the country was in “no position to preach” on human rights as it was itself “turning a blind eye” to Prince Harry’s revelations.

The Iranian foreign ministry criticised UK’s anger over the execution of a British-Iranian national Alireza Akbari accused of spying by Tehran.

“The British regime, whose royal family member, sees the killing of 25 innocent people as removal of chess pieces and has no regrets over the issue, and those who turn a blind eye to this war crime, are in no position to preach others on human rights,” a tweet by Iran’s ministry read.

Another tweet called the outrage “a sign of their evasion and violation of law”, adding, “Britain’s encroachment on the national security of the Islamic Republic of Iran has been met with a decisive response from the Iranian intelligence and judiciary.”
