British IS recruiter Sally Jones killed in Syria drone strike - Sky sources

Posted October 13, 2017

Ms Jones, 50, who lived an ordinary life in Chatham, Kent, before she became radicalised, ended up feted as the "White Widow" and became a integral figure after the death of Kings Heath terrorist Junaid Hussain, who was the leader of the Islamic State's "digi-jihad" computer hacking brigade. "I do not have any information that would substantiate that report but that could change and we are looking into this" Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman, told the Guardian.

Rukmini Callimachi, a correspondent for the New York Times, also said two senior US officials denied that Jones was dead. A former L'Oreal saleswoman, Jones left school at the age of 16 and started working as a beautician.

Jones has used her son-who has previously appeared in an ISIS execution video-as a human shield in the past, prompting speculation that he may have been killed in the drone strike.

Mr Fallon also stressed that IS was preparing and inspiring terror attacks in the UK. She is claimed to have helped plot the kidnapping and beheading of a US army veteran. She would use social media to try to recruit other women to join ISIS.

A British jihadi who became one of the most wanted terrorists has been killed in a drone strike in Syria, the Sun newspaper reported on Thursday, Oct. 12. He was aged 21. According to the Sun, her death was kept quiet over fears that her son was killed as well.

Born in the Greenwich area of London, she posted extremist comments online such as: "You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railings at Raqqa". In another photograph she waved an AK 47, wearing a face veil.

The US Air Force Predator strike took place near the Syria-Iraq border, the newspaper said.

"The premise that Sally Jones and her son are dead is probably accurate".

Lately, Jones desired to return to the United Kingdom, revealed "Aisha", the wife of another ISIS fighter, according to reports by Dailymail.
