The Middle East, home to the original ISIS “caliphate, ” has become inhospitable for the group following the liberation of Raqqa, Syria, and Mosul, Iraq, at the hands of U.S.-backed troops and local forces. Based on our own intelligence information, foreign fighters who were displaced from the Middle East continued to enter into our porous borders and may be planning to take two southern cities — Iligan and Cotabato,”  Ebrahim Murad, the chief of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), told Reuters.
