An ex-British punk rocker turned militant is on top of the Pentagon's kill list, reported the Sunday Times of London.

The wanted militant, Sally Jones, has become "high priority" on the kill list. The 49-year-old was implicated in two plots to harm innocent American citizens. In a first attempt, she had wanted to live stream a US veteran's murder, while in the second attempt she had plotted mass shooting at a concert in North Carolina.

Jones is now believed to be in Iraq or Syria hoping to avoid the fate of her late husband, Junaid Hussain, a computer hacker who was killed by a US drone in the previous IS stronghold Raqqa in Syria, 2015.  It is believed that Jones also participated in a failed plot to targeting Queen Elizabeth in London, in 2015.

Head of Islamic State in Afghanistan killed

Jones, a Kent resident, and Hussain, a resident from Birmingham, England, were nicknamed “Mr and Mrs Terror.” Hussain was known for ranking high in technology operations through CyberCalipha and Jones for recruiting women, making them both celebrities in the IS.

Before becoming a part of IS, Jones was a guitarist in a rock band called Krunch. She is the mother of two children who may  have already been brainwashed with hatred. In a video that surfaced last year, children were seen executing Kurds who had been captured; one of them is believed to be Jones' 11-year-old son, Umm Hussain Britaniyah.

Jones now goes by the name Sakinah Hussain.
