Prince Harry is being targeted for death in Afghanistan ... so says a rep for the Taliban (yes, they have a rep).

Harry -- a helicopter pilot in the British military -- is currently on a 4 month tour in Afghanistan ... where he is reportedly fighting Taliban insurgents on the front lines.

Obviously, his presence has pissed off the Taliban ... and now terrorist spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid tells Reuters the group has made it a top priority to kill or kidnap the Prince.

"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," Mujahid said during a phone interview either conducted in a cave ... or a suburb in Pakistan.

During the interview, Mujahid referred to the Taliban plans as the "Harry Operations" ... added, "We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him."

In over 10 years of war in Afghanistan not a single Apache crew person has been killed or captured.... They have no chance.

What a cynical attempt on the part of the UK to make the rest of the world forget the "Nekkid Pix".

Course he's not putting anyone else's life in danger by being out there and because of who he is. The only way they would be able to capture or kill him is to shoot him down and thats unlikely given how much the Taliban are scared of the Apache attack helicopter. (Which is what he flies) Why would they bring him back anyway? It's a warzone - Generally considered to be quite dangerous places anyway. His deployment is just routine as part of the rotation of the unit he is part of. And there have been quite a few other nations fighting the Taliban / Al-queda since this whole thing began. You just need to watch more news FLORIDAGIRL
