Sally Jones, a former punk rocker from Kent, United Kingdom, who gained notoriety as "Mrs Terror" after joining the Islamic State group (also called ISIS), was reportedly killed in a United States drone strike along with her 12-year old son Jojo in Syria as she tried to escape Raqqa, the Sun reported.

Though Whitehall sources confirmed reports that Jones was killed, according to the Guardian, the Pentagon was unable to confirm the news. Maj Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman, told the Guardian, “I do not have any information that would substantiate that report but that could change and we are looking into this.”

Rukmini Callimachi, a correspondent for the New York Times, also said two senior U.S. officials denied that Jones was dead.

Fifty-years-old Jones was born in Greenwich, southeast London, and later moved to Kent. A former L’Oreal saleswoman, Jones left school at the age of 16 and started working as a beautician. Later, she became interested in music and played bass guitar in an all-girl punk band called Krunch.

In 2013, she left her home with her then 8-year old son Jojo — leaving her older son behind — to joine the Islamic State "caliphate." She met Junaid Hussain, a British-Pakistani computer hacker who worked for the terror group, online and married him to become a “jihadi bride.” She changed her name to Umm Hussein al-Britani, and soon became a high-profile figure of the group.

Given her penchant for encouraging terror attacks in the West, she was nicknamed Mrs Terror. She is claimed to have helped plot the kidnapping and beheading of a U.S. army veteran. She gradually became a key recruiter for ISIS and soon topped the U.S. kill-list.

Jones collected another nickname — White Widow —after Hussain was killed by a U.S. army drone in IS group capital of Raqqa in 2015. He was aged 21. 

Jones was an active propagandist on social media platform for the terror group, especially using Twitter to recruit women for  ISIS and advising them on the practicalities of traveling to Syria. She also encouraged them to carry out attacks in Britain and offered lessons on making home-made bombs.

Metro reported that in a Twitter post after Hussain’s death, Jones claimed she was "proud my husband was killed by the biggest enemy of Allah, may Allah be pleased with him." Later, Jones also images of her in a nun's costume with a gun and talked about her desire to behead Christians with a “nice blunt knife." In another photograph she waved an AK 47, wearing a face veil.

If reports of Jones’ death are true, she would be the sixth Briton killed by drones in Syria. Jones always traveled with her son as a human shield to avoid assassination.

Lately, Jones desired to return to the U.K., revealed "Aisha," the wife of another ISIS fighter, according to reports by Dailymail. However, public sentiment was against her and a petition which called for a ban on her ever returning to the country received more than 18,000 signatures.
