The British jihadi widow of an ISIS fighter has threatened a series of bomb attacks on British cities.

Sally Jones, originally from Kent and known as Mrs Terror, became infamous after marrying notorious ISIS fighter Junaid Hussain, who was killed in a drone strike last year.

The former punk rocker, also known as Umm Hussain Birtaniya, referred to drones and suicide attacks in a number of threatening Twitter posts.

The so-called "white widow" wrote: "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."


Jones also wrote: "U can't just sit there with ur tea & scones ordering RAF drone strikes on UK brothers with no comeback from the Islamic state."


The former punk rocker's dead husband was the leader of the Islamic State's "digi-jihad" hacking brigade, The Mirror reports.

She is believed to have left Britain for Syria with her 10-year-old child in 2013 in order to marry Hussain.

Jones has also made threats of terror attacks on Glasgow and called on British women to carry out attacks in the UK during Ramadan.

Rita Katz, director of SITE Intelligence group, told The Independent the Twitter account appeared to be genuine, explaining that the account avoids suspension by Jones repeatedly taking the account down and deleting and re-tweeting her posts.


Jones claimed in Twitter to be located in Mosul, Iraq with her son and uploaded a photo in front of the Tigris.


The British woman has previously used her Twitter account to promote ISIS propaganda, including her wish to behead a Western prisoner in Syria and behead Christians with a "blunt knife".

In September 2015, the United Nations sanctioned Jones as an agent operating on behalf of a terrorist organisation, The Independent says.
