Punk singer-turned-ISIS recruiter 'killed' in drone strike

It was previously claimed Jones was using Hamza as human shield in an attempt to stop the US from carrying out a similar strike on her

Sally Jones, a former punk rocker from Kent, United Kingdom, who gained notoriety as "Mrs Terror" after joining the Islamic State group (also called ISIS), was reportedly killed in a United States drone strike along with her 12-year old son Jojo in Syria as she tried to escape Raqqa, the Sun reported.

The condition of her son is unknown but sources with knowledge of the matter stated that if there was an indication that JoJo was near her, the drone strike would have been aborted.

Sally Jones fled Britain with her 10-year-old son to join Islamic State extremists.

“Im f-- glad shes dead, ” her ex-boyfriend and JoJos dad, Darren Dixon, told the Daily Mail.

He refused to give any further details about his son. Jones even instructed them about which materials they would need in order to make a homemade bomb and claimed that she could remotely teach them how to assemble the explosive device. According to the Times, his mother, however, used him in a propaganda video, where he was seen shooting an ISIS hostage in the back of the head.

A convert to Islam from southern England, Jones was nicknamed the "White Widow" by the British press after her husband Junaid Hussain, also an Daesh militant, was killed by a drone in 2015.

Shiraz Maher, of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence at King's College London, commented on the news by saying: "If these reports are true, it means Sally Jones was targeted by a drone strike. We don't know for sure whether he was with her or not".

Reports say he could have been used as a human shield and killed in the strike. She was last seen fleeing Raqqa following the liberation by U.S-backed military forces, the Sun reported.

One man whose sister was recruited by Jones, told ITV he had mixed feelings about her demise.

A nine-minute Isis film issued a year ago appeared to show him executing a captured prisoner in a firing squad.

A spokesman said the boy's reported death "gives rise to some very serious questions". He repeated government advice warning against all travel to Syria.
