ISIS has officially claimed responsibility for the attack in Garland, Texas, making it the first attack by ISIS on US soil. Over the weekend, there was a shooting at a competition for cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammed. Two men drove to Garland to the convention center where the contest was being held and began shooting at the security guard. Police officers shot and killed both men.
Through it’s Al Bayan radio station, ISIS declared, “two of the soldiers of the caliphate executed an attack on an art exhibit in Garland, Texas.” The statement went on to say, “we tell America what is coming will be even bigger and more bitter.”
