'White Widow' British ISIL recruiter 'killed in air strike'

BRITISH ISLAMIC STATE recruiter Sally Jones and her 12-year-old son Jojo are believed to have been killed in a U.S. airstrike in Syria.

She was killed months ago but it is believed news of her death was withheld by the U.S. and United Kingdom amid fears that her son, Joe "JoJo" Dixon, was also killed.

USA intelligence chiefs say they can not be 100 per cent certain that the strike killed Jones as there was no attempt to recover any of her DNA.

However, she - and possibly her son - were actually killed in June during an air-strike by a US Air Force Predator, The Sun reported.

Warped Sally Jones fled to Syria with her son JoJo in 2013 where she and the child converted to Islam and joined depraved death cult ISISWhy did she rise up the USA kill list?

Junaid Hussain died in August 2015, with the extent of his involvement in planning terror plots coming to light.

In an exclusive report in 2015, Sky News revealed the couple used online messaging services to urge British would-be recruits to carry out "lone wolf" attacks in the UK.

The reported death has yet to be confirmed by official channels.

For more than three years Jones has been the world's most wanted female terrorist.

Former Ministry of Defence head of counter terror Major General Chip Chapman said Jones' alliance with Hussain and her recruitment role would have made her a "significant" target.

She frequently used her Twitter to spread propaganda for ISIS and in the past had spoken of her wish to behead a Western prisoner in Syria and kill Christians with a "blunt knife".

'How do you ask him to come back to this country and join in with ordinary kids playing football on the street when he has a Kalashnikov?

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

Jones was claimed to have helped plot the ISIS kidnapping and filmed beheading of a USA army vet, while she was also allegedly involved in the planning of a foiled nightclub shooting. "We don't know for sure whether he was with her or not".
