Sally Jones, a British-born former punk rocker who fled to Syria and become one of ISIS’s most well-known recruiters, has reportedly been killed alongside her 12-year-old son in an American drone strike. Jones had become so notorious she was better known by her nickname, the “White Widow.”
“The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. Quite frankly, it’s good riddance,” a British source told The Sun.
Jones had reportedly been high on the U.S. military’s “kill list” as a result of her recruitment campaign attempting to lure young Western girls to Syria to become jihadi brides. Jones had last been seen fleeing Raqqa, the former ISIS capital that in recent days had been recaptured by U.S.-backed forces.
Jones’ 12-year-old son had not been considered a target or an enemy combatant by the U.S., but a British official told The Times of London that he had also likely been killed in the strike. Jones’ husband, Junaid Hussain, had also been linked to terrorism. He was killed in an airstrike in 2015.
