Conclusions are made using the best available information but this cannot always be 100% certain, hence the caution from officials if this information ever comes out into the public domain.

Ideally, the video feed will be conclusive; separately agents working on the ground might be able to corroborate a successful strike.

Web traffic is monitored for confirmation among other jihadists.

British defence officials are confident in this case that Sally Jones was killed, but have questioned some of the more precise detail being reported by the media - the where and when.

Essentially though, they've got their woman, the latest high-profile scalp in what is now a sizeable operation to remove Islamic State's key figures.

She is thought to have been killed by a US drone strike. A convert to Islam from southern England, Jones was nicknamed the " White Widow " by the British press after her jihadi husband Junaid Hussain, also an IS militant, was killed by a drone in 2015.

Jones was reportedly killed trying to leave Raqqa. This would tally with recent intelligence from the city.

"Key commanders will spread themselves around a place," a British military intelligence officer told Sky News last month.

"We saw the movement out of Raqqa from these types of people much before the Raqqa operation really started in earnest."
