Central Intelligence Agency chiefs reportedly confirmed to the United Kingdom government that Jones had been killed in June, according to The Sun, but it is understood the news was not made public over fears her 12-year-old son, Jojo, also died in the blast.

Sally Jones, a Daesh (ISIS) recruiter of British origin, was reportedly killed in a U.S. airstrike in Syria.

Jones began posting rants online wearing black with her face veiled, posing with an AK-47, saying she wants to behead all Christians with a "blunt knife", according to a report in the Daily Mail. She used her Twitter account to recruit women and provided practical advice on how to travel to Syria.

Sally Jones, called by "White Widow" by British media, and her 12-year-old son were killed near Syria's border with Iraq in June after attempting to flee the militant group's de facto capital in Raqqa, The Sun reported.

The Pentagon said it's looking into reports that a British Islamic State supporter known as the "White Widow" was killed by an airstrike this summer.

"The Americans zapped her trying to get away from Raqqa".

A spokesperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May declined to comment on the report, but said that the "U.K. advises against all travel to Syria".

He tweeted: "If even 1/10th of the stories about Harvey Weinstein are true (and I believe they are), then good f**king riddance". Last week, Weinstein was accused of a series of sexual harassments and assaults by a number of women over a number of decades.

Jones previously played in a punk band. She travelled to Syria with Joe "Jojo" Dixon, her youngest son from a previous relationship, later that year.

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 USA military personnel.

Mr Fallon also stressed that IS was preparing and inspiring terror attacks in the UK.

Jones became Britain's most wanted woman after leaving her home in Kent, south east England, in 2013, to join IS, taking son Jojo with her.

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