A British Muslim woman who is among the world’s most wanted female terror suspects has threatened new strikes against Britain on social media, according to a report on Sunday.
Sally Jones, a former punk rocker who travelled to Syria after converting to Islam, praised the publication of a hit-list of US drone pilots amid claims that Islamic State (IS) hackers have also identified British military personnel involved in airstrikes in the region, the Sunday Times reported.
Resurfacing on Twitter last week after a prolonged absence the 47-year-old wrote, “You can’t just sit there with your tea and scones ordering RAF (Royal Air Force) drone strikes on UK brothers with no comeback from the Islamic State (Isis)”.
In a reference to her dead husband, Junaid Hussain, 21, who was killed by a US drone strike in Syria, Jones added,“Yes, it’s Abu Hussain’s wife. Shouldn’t you be calling for the resignation of Mike Fallon (UK defence secretary) after IS said it has a mole in the MoD?”.
Jones even chose to ‘like’ a story about her by the Sunday Times, a social media move that could eventually help Western intelligence agencies track her location.
Jones has been placed on a Pentagon ‘kill list’ after being named as a “specially designated global terrorist”. She and Hussain are known to have orchestrated attacks against the West from Syria.
IS hackers linked to Jones recently published the personal details of about 75 US staff. They now claim to have a similar list of RAF personnel.
“We are not releasing it publicly right now; let the UK wonder who’s on it,” they boasted on Twitter.
