'White Widow' Sally Jones: British Isis recruiter killed in Syria strike

Sally Jones White Widow

A former British punk rocker who became an Islamic State recruiter was reportedly killed by a US drone strike as she attempted to escape Syria.

Central Intelligence Agency chiefs reportedly confirmed to the United Kingdom government that Jones had been killed in June, according to The Sun, but it is understood the news was not made public over fears her 12-year-old son, Jojo, also died in the blast.

The US government could face repercussions if it is responsible for Jojo's death, The Sun said. There have been several such claims of IS militants having been killed only for them to resurface months later.

Both Jones and Hussain were accused of trying to recruit extremists to carry attacks out in the U.K. She was linked to around 20 Twitter accounts and posted messages of support of ISIS and extremist comments- including a picture of her dressed as a nun pointing a gun towards the camera. Later, she became interested in music and played bass guitar in an all-girl punk band called Krunch. She would use social media to try to recruit other women to join ISIS.

"I can confirm that if you are a British national in Iraq or Syria and you have chosen to fight for Daesh (IS)... then you have made yourself a legitimate target and you run the risk... of being of the wrong end of an RAF or U.S. missile strike", he added.

Jones, 50, also went by the name Sakinah Hussain, or Umm Hussain al-Britani, and once said she wanted to behead Christians with a "blunt knife".

"She added: "(Jones) was crying and wants to get back to Britain but ISIS is preventing her because she is now a military wife.

Major General Chip Chapman, the former MoD head of counter terror, told Sky News Jones was a "significant" target for the USA and UK. "She is the first woman I know of who's been specifically targeted in this way". It is likely that her son Jojo, 12, was also killed.
