WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman French Hill (AR-02) released the following statement after the ISIS attacks in Egypt:

"Earlier this year, I visited St. Peter and St. Paul’s Coptic Church in Egypt. Just two months prior to my visit, an ISIS jihadist suicide bomber disguised as a woman entered the church and murdered 25 innocent people. Today, Egypt's Coptic Christians again were attacked by ISIS jihadists. These cowardly acts perpetrated by ISIS in the churches of our allies in Egypt can't be overlooked, and this type of terror must be rejected and defeated by the entire civilized world."
