JIHADI SALLY’S SON JOJO ‘STILL ALIVE’
RELATIVES of a British jihadi bride believed to have been killed by a US drone are holding out hope her 12-year-old son is still alive.
Islamic State recruiter Sally Jones, 50, was reportedly struck down near the Syria-iraq border in June.
No DNA evidence was collected so her death could not be confirmed and it was unclear if son Jojo was killed.
But intelligence sources suggest the mum from Chatham, Kent could have been targeted when Jojo was not with her, so he may have been spared.
Jojo was said to have been routinely used as a human shield by Sally and her IS cyber chief husband Junaid Hussain, from Birmingham, who was killed in a 2015 drone strike when he ventured out without the boy.
Jojo’s dad Darren Dixon, 40, said of Jones last night: “I’m glad she’s f***ing dead.” Jones’s older son Jonathan Wilkinson, 21, said: “I don’t know anything about it. It’s all bulls***.”
Jones had been trying to flee the IS stronghold of Raqqa after becoming disillusioned with the terror group.
She fled to Syria in 2013 and wed Hussain after meeting him online. She put a photo on social media of herself dressed as a nun pointing a gun.
Footage last year appeared to show brainwashed Jojo executing a prisoner in Raqqa with other child soldiers.
Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said British nationals fighting with IS in Syria are a “legitimate target” for drone strikes.
