Iraq also sent an expeditionary force to the Golan, consisting of the 3rd Armoured Division, 6th Armoured Division, some 30,000 men, 250--500 tanks, and 700 APCs.The Iraqi divisions were actually a strategic surprise for the IDF, which expected 24-hour-plus advance intelligence of such moves. This turned into an operational surprise, as the Iraqis attacked the exposed southern flank of the advancing Israeli armor, forcing its advance units to retreat a few kilometers in order to prevent encirclement.
Combined Syrian, Iraqi and Jordanian counterattacks prevented any further Israeli gains. However, they were also unable to push the Israelis back from the Bashan salient, and suffered heavy losses. The Syrian Air Force also attacked Israeli ground forces, but was often defeated in dogfights with Israeli planes. The Israeli Air Force utilized its air superiority to bomb targets all over Syria.
