British 'White Widow' Jihadi 'Killed by US Drone'

The Sun reported on Thursday that the Central Intelligence Agency told their British counterparts that Jones, 50, died in an airstrike near the Syria-Iraq border.

Jones collected another nickname - White Widow -after Hussain was killed by a USA army drone in IS group capital of Raqqa in 2015. There have been several such claims of IS militants having been killed only for them to resurface months later.

In Raqqa, Jones adopted the nom de guerre Umma Hussain al Britani and devoted herself to Isis, using multiple Twitter handles to lure potential recruits to Syria and to encourage sympathisers to carry out attacks in their home countries.

However, it was kept secret on both sides of the Atlantic over fears her 12-year-old son Jojo may have also died in the blast. "Quite frankly, it's good riddance".

I guess that career didn't pan out for her, because she had converted to Islam, changed her name to Sakinah Hussain and moved to the Syrian Islamic State stronghold, Raqqa.

Sally Jones was an aspiring punk rock musician in England.

Asked about reports Jones' son was killed in the strike, Maj Gen Chapman added: "It is a hard one because under the UN Charters he is under the age of what we would classify as a soldier". She met Junaid Hussain, a British-Pakistani computer hacker who worked for the terror group, online and married him to become a "jihadi bride".

Google discovers Russian-bought ads
Google runs the world's largest online advertising business and YouTube is the world's largest online video site. Almost $275,000 worth of ads on Twitter were bought by RT, a Russian government-linked news outlet, during 2016.

In 2016 she posted a message saying "Have a nice summer".

She was linked to a number of failed ISIS plots, including one to target the Queen, and played a role in publishing online lists of US military personnel.

The nickname "white widow" is also attributed to Samantha Lewthwaite- the widow of the 2005 London attacker Germaine Lindsay- who has since been linked to a number of terror plots in Africa.

Sally Jones appears in a selfie before she left for Syria, and in a burqa with a weapon.

She died while attempting to flee the Syrian city of Raqqa as it came under increased attack from US coalition forces and American-backed local troops on the ground.

Major General Chip Chapman, the former MoD head of counter terror, told Sky News Jones was a "significant" target for the United States and UK.
