LONDON - Following Prince Harry's recent deployment to Afghanistan, Taliban threats against him remain strong, according to various reports.
ABC's Good Morning America reported in February that the Taliban would make Prince Harry a "priority" and that they want him "dead or alive" if he returned to Afghanistan.
Yahoo reports that the Taliban reiterated their intentions again Monday in a phone interview with Reuters, saying they're calling it the "Harry Operations."
Captain Harry Wales recently arrived back in Afghanistan on his four-month tour to fight on the front lines in a top secret mission, according to ABC .
The prince is said to be on surveillance missions, targeting the Taliban, flying Apache helicopters and escorting troops and equipment during his tour.
Prince Harry spent months training in California for his second tour in Afghanistan, but still wanted to be deployed despite the threats.
He had reportedly taken special hostage situation training because the Taliban threats were, and continue to be, so high.
The special training was intended to teach Prince Harry what to expect in the event that he was kidnapped, as the Taliban has claimed that they would do everything to "kill or capture" him.
During his first tour in Afghanistan, Harry had to be pulled out for safety reasons once word got out that he was on the ground, according to ABC.
Yahoo also reports that the NATO Secretary General said in an interview that they do everything they can to protect all of their troops and that they are not overly worried about the threats against Prince Harry.
