White Widow sentenced her son to death
FURY AS DRONE KILLS JOJO TOO
JIHADI drone victim Sally Jones – dubbed the White Widow – was last night branded a murderer for dragging her 12-year-old son to hell.
Jones was blown up by a missile fired by a US Air Force Predator as she tried to flee the terror network’s besieged stronghold of Raqqa in Syria.
Her son JoJo – whom she took with her when she quit Britain to join Isis in 2013 – is believed to have been killed with her.
Jones, 50 – who got her nickname after becoming a leading Isis recruiter – is known to have used the youngster as a human shield.
The brainwashed boy had also appeared in sickening propaganda videos for the terror group.
A nine-minute Isis film issued last year appeared to show him executing a captured prisoner in a firing squad.
Yesterday, as news of Jones’s death in June was confirmed by British intelligence sources, human rights watchdog Amnesty International demanded an investigation.
A spokesman said the boy’s reported death “gives rise to some very serious questions”.
He added: “We need to know whether the UK or US authorities made any assessment of the dangers of killing or injuring others at the time of the drone strike.
“The attack on Ms Jones is another worrying example of a drone strike carried out in circumstances of questionable legality leading to summary killings including that of a child.’’
Jones, from Chatham, Kent, was killed near the Syria-Iraq border as rebels moved in to drive Isis out of Raqqa. She fled to the trouble-torn region with Brit husband Junaid Hussain, who was killed by a US drone strike in 2015.
Last night Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said all British nationals fighting with Isis in Syria were a “legitimate target”.
He added: “If you have chosen to fight for an illegal organisation that is preparing and inspiring terror attacks you run the risk every hour of being on the wrong end of a missile.’’
Last year JoJo’s dad Darren Dixon said his son was “brilliant, just a normal boy, always chasing bugs, going down the park”.
And Jones’s stepdad Terry Lynch said she had “no right” to take his grandson with her to join Isis.
“The sooner they blow her up the better,’’ he said then.
“She’s a nutter. She’s a crank.”email@example.com
