ISIS widow Sally Jones rises up US kill list after inspiring female terror recruits

The 49-year-old mother of two from Kent is now considered a “high priority” for assassination after she and her jihadi husband Junaid Hussain masterminded an IS recruitment drive and devised several potential terror plots against allied troops. 

One such plan involved kidnapping a former US soldier and beheading him on camera, the Sunday Times reported. 

Another attack that never came to fruition involved a teenager killing hundreds of concert goers in a Bataclan-style massacre.

Jones is also thought to have been responsible for creating a new generation of female ISIS terrorists using social media as a recruiting tool.   

Jones, a failed punk rocker, fled to Syria with her son Joe and joined ISIS in 2013.

She is thought to have brainwashed her boy to become a killer like herself.

A video released last year by the terror cell showed a British-born executioner named Abu Abdullah Al-Britani – believed to be Jones’ son – shooting Kurdish prisoners. 

The warped widow is now said to be protecting herself from assassination by using the child as a human shield.  

Her husband, a 21-year-old computer hacker from Birmingham, was killed in a drone strike in Raqqa in 2015. 

After her husband was killed in a US drone strike, leaving her and Hussain’s other wife widowed, Jones began leading the the female wing of the Anwar al-Awlaki battalion.

An ISIS defector said last year: “Isil respects her because she is the widow of Junaid, who was very important to the group.

“They want to send a message to their important fighters that they will respect their families and guarantee a good life for them after their death.”

She reportedly receives a monthly salary from the terror cell of about £520, as well as an occasional £200 bonus as the widow of a Daesh soldier.

She has never remarried because ISIS soldiers now consider her “too old”, the Daily Mail claimed.

Before her social media accounts were shut down, Jones expressed hopes of becoming ISIS’ first female suicide bomber against the West.

She wrote in 2015: “I know what I’m doing. Paradise has a price and I hope this will be the price for Paradise’.”
