The ministry said the two suspects, identified as Mohamed Younis and El-Sayed Mostafa, shot at police as they tried to apprehend them at their hideout.
 
They were involved in a range of “violent incidents” recently, the statement said, without specifying further.
 
Younis was responsible for mobilising and storing explosives within the group, according to the statement.
 
Hasm has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks on security personnel in recent months, mostly targeting police checkpoints.
 
Security forces have arrested and killed dozens of suspected Hasm members in the past few months.
 
Officials have said the group is linked to the banned Muslim Brotherhood
