British newspaper the Sun quotes a British government official as saying: “The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. Quite frankly, it’s good riddance,” the official said about Sally Jones.
Jones, 50, left the UK in 2013 with her 12-year-old son, JoJo, to join the terror group in Syria, gaining notoriety herself, after marrying a notorious Isis fighter. The convert left the UK to marry Junaid Hussain who was also killed in an earlier drone strike

CIA officials reportedly, informed their British counterparts that a US Air Force Predator drone flown by a pilot in the US killed the pair in June near the border between Syria and Iraq, the paper reported.
But news of the strike has been kept under wraps on both sides of the Atlantic amid fears that JoJo, whose jihadist mom had used him as a human shield, might also have been killed.
US intelligence officials were quoted as saying they could not be 100 percent certain that Jones had been killed because there was no way of recovering any DNA from the site — but that they were “confident” she was dead.

Jones, a major ISIS recruiter of foreign female Jihadis, had been designated a high-value target, but sources said her son was not specifically targeted because he was not deemed a combatant.
He is believed to have been brainwashed by ISIS thugs, who gave him lessons in radical Islam, as well as firearms and martial arts training, according to the Sun.
