1973 - 1974 (Yom Kippur War of Attrition in Syria)
During the Yom Kippur War, the Syrian Arab Republic requested military aid from Cuba and the Cuban government sent troops to man an armoured brigade with Soviet-supplied T-62 tanks that the Syrians couldn't man due to armored crew losses during the war. The Cuban Brigade took part in combat during the (Syrian) War of Attrition January - May 1974, where the Syrians attempted to retake the summit of Mount Hermon (March-May 1974), seeing heavy losses on both sides. Following the 31 May 1974 disenagement deal between Israel and Syria, the Cubans were eventually withdrawn from Syria in December 1975 after suffering 180 KIA and 250 WIA.
