    You are correct: the strike was meant for Egypt only. However, the first day of the war Nasser asked Syria to launch an assault against Israel resulting in Syria`s defeat. Iraq didn`t even make it to the frontline. As for Jordan: the Israeli military warned Hussein to stay out of the fighting (message was sent for delivery to the Norwegian commander of the UN peace-keeping force). Unfortunately Hussein ignored the warning, dragging himself into the conflict, giving Israel the opportunity to re-unite Jerusalem as Israels capital.
