Isis 'White Widow' Sally Jones is killed by USA drone strike

Both Rankine-Galloway and Corbyn were responding to a report Thursday by The Sun that cited Central Intelligence Agency officials in reporting Jones' death - by a drone strike in June near the Syria-Iraq border.

A British jihadist reportedly killed by a United States drone strike in Syria should have faced trial, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said.

The Guardian reports that Jones, born in Greenwich but who later lived in Kent, was once the singer and guitarist in an all-female punk band in the '90s called Krunch.

The woman, Sally Jones, converted to Islam in 2013 and became known to authorities for traveling to Syria to join her militant husband.

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.

Broadcasting from NY, the LBC presenter said: "It's all well and good the government saying these people are legitimate targets". Later married a computer hacker Gonad Hussein, who was killed in an attack by a drone in 2015.

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".

The wife of another immigrant to the so-called Islamic caliphate said she knew Jones and described her as "very cute".

A Whitehall source told The Sun: "The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. She told me she wish to go to her country".

Major General Chip Chapman, the former MoD head of counter terror, said Jones would have been a "significant" target as a result of her alliance with Hussain and her role in recruiting IS fighters.

"That way. when you interrogate someone, you get more information".

"If you take out those who are high value target women it is going to have an impact at the operation level of IS".

According to the newspaper report, the source said that her son, Joe Dixon, had not been specifically targeted by the missile strike, as he would not have been regarded as a combatant.
