The Syrian Air Force received a large number of Mi-8s during the 1960s, and especially in the 1970s. Syrian Mi-8s became involved in a number of daring commando attacks, beginning with the successful assault against the Israeli observation post at Mt.Hermon, on the first day of the 'Teshreen War', in 1973. This Mi-8 was sighted few days later, at low level over Damascus.
