A British woman who became one of the world’s most wanted female terrorists after going to Syria to fight with the Islamic State has been killed by a U.S. drone strike, according to reports.
Sally Jones, a 50-year-old former punk guitarist from the London suburb of Kent, moved to the war-torn country in 2013 with her husband and son.
Her husband, Junaid Hussain, also from the U.K., was killed in a drone strike in 2015, leading some to call her the “White Widow.”
Reports of Jones’ death near the ISIS capital of Raqqa began early Thursday, with The Guardian citing a source saying that both she and her 12-year-old Jojo are believed dead.
Other reports said it was unclear whether Jojo was with her.
A Pentagon spokesman told the Daily News that they did not have information to confirm the reports.
Jones’ work for terrorism was first detailed in 2014, when The Times of London created a fake social media account for “Aisha” that the Briton tried to lure to the Middle East.
She encouraged attacks in the West promised an “awesome life” to those who came to the so-called caliphate, currently losing territory to a U.S.-led coalition and the Syrian army.
Jones was added to a United Nations sanctions list as well as a U.S. Treasury Department terrorist list.
