A British punk rocker who became an ISIS poster girl has told friends she wants to leave the terror group and return to the UK.

Friends of the Raqqa-based jihadi bride and terrorist recruitment officer is desperate to come home after her husband Junaid Hussain was killed in a drone strike.

The Kent mother, 49, who took her son to Syria, was put on the Pentagon’s kill list because the couple were responsible for planning a dozen terror plots.

A friend, called Aisha, told Sky News: ‘She was crying and wants to get back to Britain but ISIS is preventing her because she is now a military wife. 

‘She told me she wish to go to her country.’

The failed punk rocker’s extremist husband was a computer hacker from Birmingham. He was wiped out by an American drone strike in Raqqa in 2015.

One foiled plot hatched by the pair involved kidnapping a former US soldier and beheading him on camera. 

Another plan was to be carried out by a teenager shooting at hundreds of people at a nightclub or concert.

Sally Jones, 45, who once played in a female punk band, ran away from her home in Chatham, Kent, to wage jihad with her toyboy husband in Raqqa, Syria, the terror group’s de facto capital.

ISIS video emerged of the mother-of-two leading members of the al-Khanssaa Brigade – the all-women army set up by ISIS – in a series of chants expressing the fighters’ commitment to jihad.

The convert has previously hinted that she might fancy becoming a suicide bomber herself, writing earlier: ‘I know what I’m doing. Paradise has a price and I hope this will be the price for Paradise’.

It is believed that Jones recruited dozens of women to ISIS via social media before her accounts were shut down. 

She fled the UK with her son Jojo, who she now calls Hamza, while her 18-year-old son was left behind.

Since then, Jones has posted a series of chilling threats on social networking sites. She also posed for photos with an AK-47, while dressed in black with her face veiled. 

She is also believed to be using her 11-year-old son Jojo as a human shield. 

After her husband’s death, it is thought she received a monthly salary from ISIS of £520, plus a bonus of more than £200 every couple of months for being the widow of a ‘shahid’ or martyr.

According to one activist she is yet to remarry because ‘she is considered old and ISIS fighters prefer young girls.’

The former lead guitarist – who spent a lifetime on state benefits while living in the UK – also ranted online about how she wanted to behead Christians with a ‘blunt knife’.

Using the pseudonym Umm Hussain al-Britani, she also abused Jews and praised Osama bin Laden.

Her family has previously said they are deeply shocked by her conversion to radical Islam.

In the early 1990s she was the lead guitarist in an all-girl rock band called Krunch who played a series of gigs in the South East.

A clip of one of her performances posted online shows her with a shock of blonde hair and wearing a leather mini-skirt.

Meanwhile, Jones’s husband Hussain was the leader of a computer hacking group known as Team Poison. He fled Britain while on police bail suspected of violent disorder in Birmingham.

He was also jailed for six months in 2012 for stealing sensitive information from an aide of Tony Blair and blocking a government anti-terrorist hotline with prank calls.

He was eviscerated by a drone two years ago.
