1) Last time I checked, thanks to their decades of refusal to deal with Israel in any sort of way, Syria and Lebanon are both at a state of war with Israel, and have been for 60+ years. Since they are waring parties, if one side were to intercept weapons going to the otherside, then I'm fairly certain its not piracy. and more importantly 2) Go look up the Proliferation Security Initiative and its implication to the "Law of the sea". Since the ship was flying the flag of a signatory of the treaty, they are subject to random boardings/checks.
