ISIS lays claim to Texas terror: 'What is coming is more bitter and harder'

ISIS has taken to its official radio station to claim responsibility for the Texas attack that left one injured – and the two attackers dead – and the group's vowing to carry out more.

Agence France-Presse reported the terror group said: "Two of the soldiers of the caliphate executed an attack on an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, and this exhibit was portraying negative pictures of the Prophet Muhammad."

The Curtis Culwell Center in Garland became a scene of chaos after two gunmen, since identified as Muslim convert Elton Simpson and his roommate, Nadir Soofi, drove a vehicle into the parking lot, exited and began shooting at nearby police. Police fired back and killed the two men. One security guard who was shot in the leg has been treated and released from a nearby hospital.

Federal authorities had watched Simpson for years for links to terrorism, Fox News reported. A source close to Simpson, meanwhile, has expressed shock at his role in the shooting, telling WND in a previous article: "He seemed to be very kind" and "didn't seem to me to be any threat to anybody."

Tuesday, ISIS radio cheered the attacks, vowing more to come.

"We tell America that what is coming is more bitter and harder and you will see from the soldiers of the Caliphate what harms you," the ISIS report said, AFP reported.

U.S. authorities have not confirmed the attacks were tied to ISIS, or even to radical Islamism.
