Iran has taken delivery of the Russian-made S-300 air missile defense system, the Iranian Tasnim News Agency reported Monday.

Russia was to provide Iran with at least five S-300 systems in a deal worth more than 0 million that was initially inked in 2007, Tasnim reported.

That deal was revoked in 2010 when Moscow banned supply of the systems.

The systems made their debut in a military parade in Tehran in April, Tasnim reports.

It includes two radar systems, its carrier and command vehicles, as well as a crane for lifting the missiles.

The S-300 is a surface-to-air, long-range air defense and anti-ballistic missile defense system.

The Middle East is currently in the midst of widespread instability, civil strife and the collapse or contraction of state authority.

Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Turkey, the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Tunisia and Egypt have all experienced major instability over the last half decade.

The first four of these areas have effectively ceased to exist as unitary states, and are now partitioned de facto between warring entities, organised according to ethnic, sectarian or tribal loyalty.

The Palestinian territories too are divided into areas controlled by the Islamist Hamas movement in Gaza and the Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank.

In this fractious landscape, powerful regional states are seeking to gain advantage, extend their own power, and diminish that of their rivals.
