Dr Shiraz Maher of King's College London said:
Most British jihadists go to Syria for sincere reasons to help in what they believe is a struggle against oppression but many don't appreciate the reality on the ground.
There are around 10 British women out there, we believe, and most have travelled to Syria with their husbands.
They go believing they will fight jihad to overthrow Assad but may actually be getting in the way of the rebellion by joining groups and fuelling the infighting they are involved in.
Ten British women may have travelled to Syria to join the fight against the Assad regime's forces, according to experts.
The Daily Mirror reports that the women could have joined up with an extremely violent Islamist group called 'Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which is so brutal it has reportedly even been disowned by al-Qaeda.

Amani Deghayes said the campaign is asking people to spy on relatives and could potentially lead to vulnerable people - such as mothers - being manipulated by police.
Abdullah Deghayes, 18, from Brighton, died in Kassab, Latakia Province, earlier this month after leaving the UK in January. Two of his brothers remain in Syria.
