Damascus: United Kingdom most wanted woman Sally Jones, a former musician who joined Daesh has been killed in Syria during US drone attack on Daesh hideouts.
Once a punk rocker, Jones, dubbed ‘White Widow’, had fled to Syria with her son in 2013 before becoming a recruiter for the Daesh group.
Now she is believed dead after US spy chiefs reportedly told their counterparts at MI6 that the militant was killed by a predator drone close to the border between Syria and Iraq in June.
Jones, 50, was a high priority on the Pentagon’s ‘kill list’ because she was believed to have masterminded dozens of terror plots.
It remains unclear if her 12-year old son survived the strike.
Jones had fled Britain to join Daesh after reportedly falling for a militant hacker named Junaid Hussain. Her son is believed to have been forced to execute prisoners during his time there after being brainwashed.
Hussain was killed in a US drone strike in 2015 aged 21.
