- the presence of ISIS or its affiliates in countries other than Syria, Iraq, Libya, Egypt, and Afghanistan;
- preventing radicalization of citizens of regional countries by ISIS;
- the number of foreign fighters joining ISIS and tactics to prevent further recruitment; and
- significant U.S. intelligence gaps concerning ISIS and the ability to carry out a regional strategy to defeat it.
