In Syria killed the recruiter "ID" White widow

British ISIS recruiter Sally Jones has reportedly been killed in an air strike

The British member of Islamic State Sally Jones is believed to have been killed, along with her 12-year-old son Jojo, in a U.S. airstrike.

Referring to reports her son was killed in the strike, he added: "It is a hard one because under the UN Charters he is under the age of what we would classify as a soldier".

Asked about her death, first reported by the Sun, Mr Corbyn said it was unconfirmed but "quite clearly it is significant, if it has happened". There have been several such claims of IS militants having been killed only for them to resurface months later.

The former punk rocker from Kent fled to Syria with her son in 2013 and became a leading recruitment officer for Islamic State.

British Islamic State recruiter Sally Jones, the so-called "White Widow", has reportedly been killed by a drone strike in Syria.

Jojo, 12, was believed to be travelling with Jones at the time and may also have been killed in the strike.

If reports of Jones' death are true, she would be the sixth Briton killed by drones in Syria.

In 2016 she posted a message saying "Have a nice summer". She travelled to Syria with Joe "Jojo" Dixon, her youngest son from a previous relationship, later that year.

The woman, a widow of a jihadi fighter, told Sky News that Jones "was crying and wants to get back to Britain but Isis is preventing her".

Mr Corbyn, said it was hard to answer a question about whether he would have ordered a drone strike to kill Jones if British troops had been at risk, as it was hypothetical.

"The premise that Sally Jones and her son are dead is probably accurate".
