“The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa. Quite frankly, it’s good riddance,”the Sun quoted a Whitehall source as saying.
The Sun’s article claims that the CIA told their British counterparts that Jones had been killed by a Predator drone strike.
There are fears that the strike might have also killed her 12-year-old son Joe ‘Jojo’ Dixon. The Sun's sources said ‘Jojo’ was not specifically targeted in the strike, and it would have been called off if he had been known to be in the vicinity.
“I do not have any information that would substantiate that report but that could change and we are looking into this,” Pentagon spokesman Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway was quoted as saying by the Guardian.
Jones, who was the lead guitarist of an all-girl rock-band in the 1990s, left her home in Kent to join the terrorists in Syria with her husband Junaid Hussain back in 2013.
