Singaporean Islamic State militant challenges Prince Harry to a fight

Singaporean Islamic State militant challenges Prince Harry to a fight”

The royal is told that if he is "man enough" he should travel to fight ISIS himself in a chilling clip from one of the terror group's fanatical supporters.

Britain's Prince Harry was recently challenged by a Syria-based Islamic State (IS) fighter to fight Jihadists in the war-torn country following his visit to Singapore in June of this year, where His Highness addressed the terror attack that occurred in London.

"Why don't you come here and fight us if you're man enough, so that we can send you and your Apaches to hellfire, biidhnillah (Allah permitting)?" he said in the video which was circulated by the SITE Intelligence Group.

The fifth in line to the British throne had visited Singapore soon after an ISIS-claimed terror attack in London in June during which three knifemen had used a van to ram pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in restaurants and pubs around Borough Market area of London.

The attack saw knife-wielding men mow down and stab revellers on a night out, killing seven before they were gunned down by police.

Prince Harry previously served in the British military, where he flew Apache attack helicopters in Afghanistan.

In his speech, Harry had made a reference to the attack, which had claimed eight lives and injured 48 others.

The country's Ministry of Home Affairs said he left for the Middle East in 2014, "where he was believed to have been radicalised".

Singapore's interior ministry said it believed the person in the video was a Singaporean.

The Islamist was identified as 39-year-old Megat Shahdan bin Abdul Samad by the Singaporean authorities following the video's release.

Worries that the island nation could be the target of a future attack have grown due to its importance as a financial centre, as well as Singapore's tough stance against terrorism.
