BREAKING NEWS – Taliban Attacks Camp Bastion In Hopes Of Killing Prince Harry

Just one day after his birthday,  Prince Harry was whisked to safety by SAS bodyguards as the Taliban launched deadly attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanastan in hopes of killing him.

A spokesman for the Taliban, which has released what it says is a video of the assault on Camp Bastion, said: “We attacked the base as Prince Harry was on it, and so they know our anger. Thousands more suicide attackers are ready to give up their lives.”

The insurgents  passed through checkpoints in pick-up trucks before the attack, the Taliban had been wearing local clothes and are thought to have been unarmed.

The fighters then collected the uniforms and weapons – including AK47 automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades – which are thought to have been buried near the Nato base in Helmand.

A suicide bomber blew a hole in the perimeter fence. Other fighters detonated their suicide vests in the battle.

The attack was well planned and it is thought the insurgents may have had help from members of the Afghan army or Afghan civilians who work at the base.

Harry who had armed himself and was ready to fight but was taken to a fortified safe room on the base during the three-hour suicide bombing mission. Harry was prepared for the fight but had to follow the plan.

The insurgents destroyed six American Harrier jets, three refuelling stations and damaged six aircraft hangars.

Eight Coalition forces and one civilian contractor were wounded while the  insurgents destroyed six American Harrier jets, three refuelling stations and damaged six aircraft hangars.

14 attackers were killed in all, and another was wounded and captured.
