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

Central Intelligence Agency officials told their British counterparts that a U.S. Air Force Predator killed Jones, according to the Sun. There have been several such claims of IS militants having been killed only for them to resurface months later. She used Twitter to try to encourage more female recruits to come forward and offered advice on travel to 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".

The Home Office source is quoted as saying, "The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa".

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".

Sally Jones was an aspiring punk rock musician in England. It is noted that her 12-year-old son died with his mother.

Reports suggest she was killed by a US Air Force Predator strike as she was attempting to flee Raqqa in Syria heading to Syria stronghold Mayadin.

She was linked to a number of failed ISIS plots, including one to target the Queen, and played a role in publishing online lists of US military personnel. She was nicknamed the "White Widow" after this.

She died while attempting to flee the Syrian city of Raqqa as it came under increased attack from USA coalition forces and American-backed local troops on the ground.

Major General Chip Chapman, the former MoD head of counter terror, said Jones would have been a "significant" target as a result of her alliance with Hussain and her role in recruiting IS fighters.
