The fate of the foreign fighters following the fall of the Islamic State

In the past several years, the Islamic State has attracted thousands of foreign fighters and their families from around the world. Now that the governments of Syria and Iraq have announced victory over the extreme Muslim group, questions arise as to what will happen to those foreigners that seek to return – in most of the cases - to their home countries.

To further discuss this challenge, I'm joined here in the studio by Lt. Col. Res. Reuven Ben Shalom - Cross-cultural analyst and columnist for the Jerusalem Post; and Dr. Amira Halperin - Research fellow at the Hebrew University's Truman Institute. Analyst Amir Oren.
