USA spy chiefs reportedly told MI6 that Sally Jones was killed close to the border between Syria and Iraq in June.

Reports suggest that Jones and her son were both killed in a drone strike in June, but this has not been officially confirmed. There have been several such claims of IS militants having been killed only for them to resurface months later. She was dubbed the "White Widow" for regular recruiting activity on her social media accounts.

Britain on Thursday refused to confirm reports that a USA drone had killed a middle-aged British mother, also known as the "white widow,", who had joined Islamic State jihadists in Syria.

It is possible that her her 12-year-old son Jojo was killed with her.

Broadcasting from NY, the LBC presenter said: "It's all well and good the government saying these people are legitimate targets".

48-year-old Jones, who had no military experience, joined the "ID" after traveling to Syria in 2013.

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

"I do not have any information that would substantiate that report but that could change and we are looking into this", Pentagon spokesman Maj Adrian Rankine-Galloway said, The Guardian reported Thursday.

Before fleeing to Syria, computer hacker Hussain admitted publishing Tony Blair's address in 2011 and was jailed for six months after making hoax calls to a United Kingdom counter-terror hotline a year later.

The nickname "white widow" is also attributed to Samantha Lewthwaite- the widow of the 2005 London attacker Germaine Lindsay- who has since been linked to a number of terror plots in Africa.

The city is now besieged as coalition forces attempt to drive back ISIS.

The husband and wife were since on a U.S. "kill list" of high-value targets.

Former Ministry of Defence head of counter terror Major General Chip Chapman said Jones' alliance with Hussain and her recruitment role would have made her a "significant" target.
