IS Recruiter Issues Terror Threat Against UK


Damascus: A Twitter account believed to belong to the Isis propagandist Sally Jones has issued a series of terror threats against the UK.

Sally Jones, originally from Kent, became infamous after marrying a notorious Isis fighter. She is thought to have left Britain for Syria with her 10-year-old child in 2013 in order to marry Junaid Hussain who was killed in drone strike last year.

Jones, also known as Umm Hussain Birtaniya, referred to drones and suicide attacks in a flurry of Twitter posts on Wednesday.

The so-called “white widow” also made threats of terror attacks in various UK cities including Glasgow and London and called on British women to carry out attacks in the UK during Ramadan.

Jones allegedly wrote on Twitter: “To be honest I wouldn’t go into Central London through June… or even July well to be honest I wouldn’t go there at all especially by Tube.”

Further Tweets made statements such as “England… Boom” and “London-Glasgow-Wales Booooom!” She also appeared to mock foreign air strikes saying: “U can’t just sit there with ur tea & scones ordering RAF drone strikes on UK brothers.”

Rita Katz, director of SITE Intelligence group, appeared to confirm the Tweets had been issued by Jones, explaining that the account avoids suspension by Jones repeatedly taking the account down and deleting and re-tweeting her posts.

The account also uses the avatar of a crying Statue of Liberty previously associated with Jones. In the Tweets, Jones claimed to be located in Mosul, Iraq with her son and uploaded a photo in front of the Tigris.

Jones has previously used her Twitter account to propagandise for Isis and release provocative statements, including her wish to behead a Western prisoner in Syria and behead Christians with a “blunt knife”, according to the Counter Extremism Project.
