In a statement، the ministry added that the militants were hiding in a building in the province of Qaliubya and belonged to Hasm movement which was behind the killing of a police officer in July.
Hasm، which routinely targets Egyptian security forces in bombings and drive-by shootings، had claimed responsibility for gunning down Capt. Ibrahim Azazi on Friday while he was heading to a mosque.
The ministry said that the two militants، who were in their early twenties، were previously sentenced to 15 years for belonging to a terrorist group and participating in violence.
