Syrian End Game

I am not sure how many people saw this news item from a couple of days ago:

Turkey has seized a Syrian-flagged ship loaded with weapons, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said.

He did not say where or when the vessel was stopped, but vowed to confiscate any arms shipments for Syria coming through Turkish waters or airspace.
As the Syrian army blocked any exodus to Turkey to prevent them using this as a pretext to intervene, I wonder if the recently announced enhanced patrolling of the Eastern Mediterranean, is less threatening for Israel and more problematic for Syria.

After all, he vowed to do it over and over again.

And as we know, statements are more important than actions.
