IEA’s reaction to Prince Harry’s confession of killing Afghans

The Islamic Emirate has called for Prince Harry to face an international court over comments he killed 25 Afghans while on duty in Afghanistan. The IEA officials have considered his act and confession of killing Afghans as crime.
Bilal Karimi, the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, in a tweet said that such crimes have been committed not only by Harry but by any attacker in Afghanistan. Karimi added that Westerners consider themselves defenders of human rights, but in practice, they do such things.
Prince Harry, whose interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby was broadcast on Sunday night, says in the book he did not think of the individuals killed as “people”, but rather “chess pieces” which had been taken off the board and “bad people” who had been “eliminated before they could kill good people”.
“My number is 25. It’s not a number that fills me with satisfaction, but nor does it embarrass me,” he wrote. Meanwhile, a key member of the Islamic Emirate Anas Haqqani has also reacted and condemned Prince Harry’s confession of killing Afghan people.
In a tweet, Haqqani said that the ones Prince Harry killed were not chess pieces, but they were humans.
“Mr. Harry! The ones you killed were not chess pieces, they were humans; they had families who were waiting for their return. Among the killers of Afghans, not many have your decency to reveal their conscience and confess to their war crimes,” Haqqani tweeted.
The IEA key member further said: “The truth is what you’ve said; Our innocent people were chess pieces to your soldiers, military and political leaders. Still, you were defeated in that “game” of white & black “square””.
Haqqani said that he did not expect that the ICC would summon Prince Harry or the human rights activists would condemn him because they were deaf and blind for him, hoping that these atrocities would be remembered in the history of humanity.
Also, the spokesperson for foreign affairs ministry of the Islamic Emirate said the “western occupation of Afghanistan” is “an odious moment in human history”. Abdul Qahar Balkhi continued: “Comments by Prince Harry are a microcosm of the trauma experienced by Afghans at the hands of occupation forces, who murdered innocents without any accountability.”
The 38-year-old Prince Harry served in the army for 10 years and undertook two tours of Afghanistan. In his highly anticipated book, Spare, the prince says he did not think of those he killed as “people”, but instead as “chess pieces”. One Afghan who lost nine family members to a British airstrike in 2011 was among those calling for him to be punished by the international community.
