Sally Jones had joined the ranks of the terrorist organization in 2013 with his son, who would have also died in June, at the age of 12 years, wrote The Sun, citing a source within the us intelligence services.

British jihadist Sally Jones has been killed in a U.S. drone strike in Syria, Sky sources say.

Ms Jones, 50, who lived an ordinary life in Chatham, Kent, before she became radicalised, ended up feted as the "White Widow" and became a integral figure after the death of Kings Heath terrorist Junaid Hussain, who was the leader of the Islamic State's "digi-jihad" computer hacking brigade. There have been several such claims of IS militants having been killed only for them to resurface months later.

On Thursday it was reported United Kingdom jihadist Sally Jones had been killed by a USA drone strike in Syria.

Her son, JoJo was presumed to be dead too, although his presence with her was not known at the time of the drone strike and he was not an intended target, according to The Sun. "Quite frankly, it's good riddance", a British official reportedly said in response to the news.

On Twitter, she explained how to get to Syria, and published photos of her posing with a gun.

Pentagon spokesman Maj Adrian Rankine-Galloway said: "I do not have any information that would substantiate that report but that could change and we are looking into this". Later, she became interested in music and played bass guitar in an all-girl punk band called Krunch.

If reports of Jones' death are true, she would be the sixth Briton killed by drones in Syria.

In 2016 she posted a message saying "Have a nice summer".

Given her penchant for encouraging terror attacks in the West, she was nicknamed Mrs Terror.

The world's most wanted female terrorist was recently killed by a U.S. drone in Syria. Jones also allowed her son Jojo to take part in a propaganda video where he was apparently shooting a hostage in the back of the head with other young children.
