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

Jones has used her son-who has previously appeared in an ISIS execution video-as a human shield in the past, prompting speculation that he may have been killed in the drone strike.

Britain's The Sun newspaper cites U.S. intelligence sources as saying Jones was killed in June. She travelled to Syria with her 12-year-old son to join ISIS in 2013.

Khan is also facing a case against him in the Supreme Court where the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)'s petition is seeking his disqualification.

Sky's defence correspondent Alistair Bunkall said: "UK defence sources have told Sky News they believe the strike was successful but question some of the detail being reported in the media".

According to reports, official confirmation would only have been possible if remains had been checked against a DNA database - something not possible without the use of special forces on the ground. She was marked as a "high priority" on the US's kill list earlier this year, the newspaper added. "Come here I'll do it for you".

Jones, 50, also went by the name Sakinah Hussain, or Umm Hussain al-Britani, and once said she wanted to behead Christians with a "blunt knife".

Dubbed the "white widow" after her husband, also an ISIS terrorist, was killed in 2015, Sally Jones was a key online recruiter for ISIS.

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.

"Even if he got up to really bad things, he shouldn't have been targeted", he said.
