The death of Sally-Anne Jones, if confirmed, will make little or no tactical difference to the military fortunes of so-called Islamic State on the battlefield.
Despite posing online variously with a Kalashnikov and a pistol, and reportedly "leading a battalion of jihadist women", her value to the group was iconic rather than military.
But in this role she was definitely judged to be dangerous.
Along with her late husband, Junaid Hussain, she maintained a stream of hostile online propaganda aimed at the West.
This included luring western female recruits to the self-declared IS caliphate, encouraging attacks in the West and threatening to kill non-Muslims.
