Sally Jones, the British Islamic State recruiter known as the White Widow, and her teenage son were killed in Western strikes possibly in retaliation for the Manchester bombing, according to a fellow UK jihadist.
Alexanda Kotey, a member of “the Beatles” gang of British torturers, said that Jones and her son Jojo were killed on May 25, 2017, three days after the suicide bombing at the Manchester Arena killed 22 people.
“There was a building that was shelled, she lived in the building. It was shelled following the incident in Manchester, which I believe was a retaliation,” Kotey told ITV News.
"There were families in the building, it was a government building. Forty people were dead as a result… including Sally Jones and her son”.
The fate of Jones, a punk rock singer-turned jihadist, has always been murky and there have been several reports that Jojo had in fact survived the strike which killed his mother.
The pair are believed to have been staying in Raqqa, then the capital of the Islamic State, before moving to al-Mayadin in eastern Syria in 2017. They were reportedly killed there in a drone strike carried out by the CIA.
Jones and her son went to Syria in 2013 to join her boyfriend, Junaid Hussain, an Islamist computer hacker from Birmingham whom she met online. The pair married in Raqqa but Hussain was killed in a drone strike in 2015.
Jones, who went by the name Umm Hussain Britaniya, is alleged to have recruited a number of Britons to join the Islamic State. She posted photographs of herself in a burqa carrying an assault rifle.
Kotey is in Kurdish custody in Syria. The UK has stripped him of his citizenship and is refusing to bring him back to Britain, despite US pressure on the government to bring British jihadists.
Meanwhile, it emerged that the US has been quietly sending foreign fighters from Syria to stand trial in Iraq, where some of them have been sentenced to death.
US forces have reportedly sent 30 foreign jihadists captured in Syria to Iraq. In some cases, court papers appear to have been altered to make it seem as if they were arrested in Iraq.
Among them is Bilal al-Marchohi, a 23-year-old Belgian, who was sentenced to death in Iraq on March 18.
The move appears to be an effort to get around the legal conundrum of what to do with the 2,000 foreign fighters being held by Kurdish armed groups in Syria. The US military declined to comment.
