A Twitter account thought to be run by a British Islamic State supporter, known as “Mrs. Terror” has published the home address, details and family photos of a decorated U.S. soldier calling for reprisal attacks. 

The threat was published under the name of Umm Hussain Britaniya — one of the aliases used by Sally-Anne Jones — and is directed at former Army Sgt. Dillard Johnson, who claimed to be America’s deadliest soldier in his 2013 book “Carnivore.” 

Ms. Jones, 46, traveled to Syria in 2013 with her husband Junaid Hussain. He was killed in a U.S. drone strike in August. Ms. Jones was put on a U.N. sanctions list last month that includes travel bans and asset freezes. She was also included on a list of the most dangerous British recruiters for the Islamic State. 

The message posted online claimed Mr. Johnson’s information was being made public to “cause havoc in his life and for my brothers and al Qaeda in the U.S. to eventually hunt him down and kill him,” Sky News reported

“Apparently he is supposed to be America’s deadliest soldier with the most number of kills in Iraq,” the post continued. 

“He claims he killed 2,476 combatants in Iraq with everything from a .25mm chain gun to a sniper rifle to a hunting knife.

“But once he got home, just like Robert O’Neill, he also boasted about U.S. operations and he wrote a book called Carnivore and now lives off the proceeds with his wife and family who I shall post details of below,” the user wrote, referring to the Navy SEAL who claimed he fired the fatal shot that took out Osama bin Laden during the U.S. raid in Pakistan in May 2012. 

Since publishing his book, Mr. Johnson, who spent two tours in Iraq in 2003 and 2005, insisted that the alleged number of enemy kills was not true and that he never made that claim. 

However, the book cover calls him “One of the deadliest American soldiers of all time.” 

Mr. Johnson has received four purple hearts and a silver star. 

The latest threat comes two days after Mr. O’Neill was also targeted in a tweet, now believed to be from the same account.
