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.

Jones collected another nickname - White Widow -after Hussain was killed by a US army drone in IS group capital of Raqqa in 2015.

Many ISIS militants have reappeared after their reported deaths.

The Defence Secretary, Sir Michael Fallon, said Jones, dubbed the "White Widow", was a "legitimate target".

British IS recruiter Sally-Anne Jones, dubbed the White Widow, is understood to have been killed in a U.S. drone strike. "Quite frankly, it's good riddance", a British official reportedly said in response to the news.

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

"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.

For this type of injury, a full recovery is expected, although Ben McAdoo on Monday said, "That's unknown at this point". The team signed Tavarres King and promoted Travis Rudolph from its practice squad to help fill the gap.

The 50-year-old was a punk rocker from the county of Kent in England before she converted to Islam and went on to become one of the most notorious recruiters for Islamic State.

The report does not say whether he was with her at the time of the strike. In the 90's, she played in the all-woman band Krunch.

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 premise that Sally Jones and her son are dead is probably accurate".

The city is now besieged as coalition forces attempt to drive back ISIS. Hussain, who died in a USA drone strike in 2015, was accused of planning "barbaric attacks against the West".

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.
