  • Sally Jones White Widow

Jones, a former singer in the punk band, reportedly left her home in the U.K.in 2013 and travelled to Syria, where she married ISIS militant Junaid Hussain. Spokesman Maj Adrian Rankine-Galloway said, "I do not have any information that would substantiate that report but that could change and we are looking into this".

The newspaper said the blast was kept secret by the Central Intelligence Agency over concerns Jones' twelve year old son, Jojo, may have also been killed in the incident.

Quoting a British intelligence source who had been briefed by United States counterparts, The Sun reported that Jones and her son had been killed in June close to Syria's border with Iraq, as she was attempting to flee the Daesh stronghold of Raqqa. She also encouraged them to carry out attacks in Britain and offered lessons on making home-made bombs.

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.

Later, Jones also images of her in a nun's costume with a gun and talked about her desire to behead Christians with a "nice blunt knife".

If reports of Jones' death are true, she would be the sixth Briton killed by drones in Syria.

Both men said that in the end, voters need to be more aware of the type of information they are seeking out. The suspected Russian-linked ads focused on immigration issues, with one page called, "Secured Borders".


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

Rukmini Callimachi, a correspondent for the New York Times, also said two senior USA officials denied that Jones was dead.

According to the Sun, Jones was last seen fleeing from Raqqa, heading for a town on the border with Iraq.

Major Gen Chip Chapman, the former head of counter-terrorism at the Ministry of Defence, told the Press Association that she would have been a "significant" target due to her marriage to Hussain and role as a recruiter.

"Even if he got up to really bad things, he shouldn't have been targeted", he said.
