According to BusinessInsider, Libya has become ISIS' new frontier as it faces territorial loses in its stronghold in Iraq and Syria, but it faces major roadblocks to establishing a true back-up capital there.

The Combating Terrorism Center report, published Thursday, said the terrorist group ISIS suffered "setbacks" in Libya and is struggling to expand there.

The West Point center noted that there's no doubt that ISIS will remain a "violent threat" in Libya as it's targeted in Iraq and Syria.

But the center also said ISIS' Libya base would be a "poorer and more constrained organization deprived of personnel, revenue, and the fundamental narrative tropes of governance and sectarianism that is has used to 'remain and expand."
