A British woman who was a key recruiting figure for Isis and who became a notorious hate figure in her home country has reportedly been killed by a missile strike by American forces on the Iraq/Syria border.

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. In the 90's, she played in the all-woman band Krunch.

The British member of Islamic State Sally Jones is believed to have been killed, along with her 12-year-old son Jojo, in a USA airstrike. 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 had more than 20 handles on Twitter but there has been no activity from her in recent months. She gradually became a key recruiter for ISIS and soon topped the US kill-list. She also encouraged them to carry out attacks in Britain and offered lessons on making home-made bombs.

"In one propaganda post, she posed as a nun with a gun and spoke of her wish to behead Christians with a "nice blunt knife", The Sun reports. Jones always traveled with her son as a human shield to avoid assassination. She was a key recruiter of British aspiring ISIS fighters and was soon put on a United States kill list, though she continued to provide online guidance on everything from how to make homemade bombs to the best way of getting to Syria.

Major Gen Chip Chapman, the former head of counter-terrorism at the Ministry of Defence, told the Press Association that she would have been a "significant" target due to her marriage to Hussain and role as a recruiter.

He continued: "Even if he got up to really bad things, he shouldn't have been targeted".
