Cairo has demanded that the United Nations investigate thoroughly the incident involving a Tanzanian ship carrying explosive-making weapons from Turkey to Libya. The move is fueled by the fact that there is an arms embargo against Libya and the fact that ISIS terrorists have an enclave in Libya which they use to mount attacks in Africa.
Cairo believes that the violation of arms embargo undermines the efforts of the international community to stabilize the situation in Libya and ensure peace in the war-torn country. Moreover, Egypt feels that she is in direct threat by any explosives or weapons being illegally ferried to Libya seeing as intelligence reports have revealed a possible faction of ISIS operating out of Libya.
Libya has been suffering from a civil war since 2011. The country has been banned from importing arms by a UN Security Council resolution adopted in 2011.
