    British Isis member Sally Jones 'killed in airstrike with 12-year-old son'

    British Isis member Sally Jones 'killed in airstrike with 12-year-old son'

    Sally Jones - a/k/a/ The White Widow or Umm Hussain al-Britani

    The British member of Islamic State Sally Jones is believed to have been killed, along with her 12-year-old son Jojo, in a US airstrike. Although there is confidence she is dead, it is impossible to be categorical given the inability to collect evidence on the ground. Other members of Isis have been reported dead only to reappear. Jones, dubbed “the white widow” by some in the press, was a regular propagandist on social media. She had more than 20 handles on Twitter but there has been no activity from her in recent months. The Sun reported that the CIA had told its UK counterparts Jones was killed by a Predator drone strike near the Syria-Iraq border in June. It added she had last been seen fleeing from Raqqa and heading for the Syrian border town of Mayadin. Many Isis members have fled the city as the organisation has gradually been squeezed.
    Jones and her husband Junaid Hussain (EKIA 25 August 2015) were well known for using social media (Twitter) to recruit for ISIS. She also instructed European female ISIS recruits as suicide bombers. She is survived by a 20 year old son living in the UK.

    Tragic about her son... such is the life she exposed him to.

    I think you missed the part that her 12 year old son was killed as well.

    "Tragic about her son". You are, I suppose, right though I am having trouble feeling quite as sorrowful as perhaps I should. Might that because I learned at an early age that my country's (and mankind's) enemies were killing children without even the merest pang of remorse?

    Islamists kill children. In Iran they even hang them.

    MQ-1 Predator drones usually fly at ~12,000 feet in the ME. At that altitude, targets of value can neither see nor hear a drone. From the scanty info mentioned in the article, I can hazard some guesses... Raqqa is currently being besieged by both US/Kurdish and Russian/Assad forces. ISIS emirs and commanders etc are so busy trying to flee before the noose around the city tightens that they sometimes throw personal caution to the wind and get careless. A MQ-1 flying at ~6,000 feet can easily obtain a fairly clear facial pic. A drone camera snapped her picture which was immediately sent to different military/intelligence agencies (DIA, CIA, FBI, FVEY, etc) via email. A positive IDENT email was returned (probably all under a few minutes). The way it usually worked when a woman and/or a minor child was on-scene (at least under Obama drone rules), permission to go hot had to first go to the local unit commander, then the US theater commander (CENTCOM), then the Joint Chiefs in DC, and then on to White House lawyers. She had to already be on a AUMF (Authority to Use Military Force) master target list. All drone video-feed/cam-snapshots can be channeled to cleared-monitors anywhere in RT via satellite, and all related communications usually transpire within a designated secure military chatroom. Permission to go hot was granted. A AGM-114 Hellfire exploded within the vehicle. Death was quick.
