Corbyn dodges jihadist drone strike question

The former punk rocker, who became a heading recruitment officer for Islamic State, was reportedly killed by US forces close to the Iraq/Syria border.

Mr Corbyn claimed Jones’ death, if confirmed, would be “significant” but the Labour personality suggested he would rather she had been prisoner and put on trial.

Jones, from Kent, has been accused of plotting terror attacks in the UK, including against the Queen.

Asked directly either he would have certified a fatal strike on the nonconformist in sequence to forestall British armed forces being put at risk of harm, Mr Corbyn said: “It’s formidable to give an answer to that question, which is hypothetical.

“We have to demeanour very delicately at the effects on the municipal race of any bombing that takes place before such a decision is made.

“You have to demeanour at all the contribution of it.”

On Jones’ apparent death, he added: “People who have committed crimes ought to be put on hearing and that way of course, when you survey somebody you get some-more information about the credentials to it.”

Speaking during a revisit to a village centre in Shipley, West Yorkshire, Mr Corbyn also urged swell in assent talks over war-torn Syria.

“What we now have to do is demeanour to the next proviso in Syria, which is to bring everybody back around the list to get a domestic solution since you can't go on with having a fight forever,” he said.

In 2015, Mr Corbyn was rebuked by his own MPs after the Labour personality suggested it would have been “far better” if the IS belligerent Mohammed Emwazi, dubbed “Jihadi John”, had faced a justice rather than been killed in a drone strike.

Jones was married to associate British jihadist Junaid Hussain, who was was killed in a US drone strike in Aug 2015.

It was recently claimed that she was unfortunate to leave IS-held Raqqa, Syria, and return to the UK.
