The Cairo Court for Urgent Matters has designated on Saturday the militant group “Hasm”, which claimed responsibility for a number of deadly attacks on security forces as well as assassination attempts on public figures over the past year, as a terrorist group. The little-known group claimed the assassination attempt on the deputy prosecutor general in September 2016 as well as the assassination attempt on leading Islamic cleric Ali Gomaa in August of the same year. In December 2016, Hasm also claimed responsibility for a deadly explosion at a police checkpoint in the Haram district in Giza, which killed 6 policemen and left 4 injured. In mid-January, the High State Security Prosecution referred 304 people to military trials for alleged membership in Hasm
