TEHRAN (AP): Iran has successfully test-fired a sophisticated Russian-made air defence system, the official IRNA news agency has reported.

The report said the test of the S-300 system on Saturday came during a recent military exercise named Damvand, the name of Iran's highest mountain.

It said the test targeted various flying objects including missiles. With a range of up to 200 kilometers, the S-300 is capable of simultaneously tracking and striking multiple targets.

Russia delivered the S-300 system to Iran in 2016, nearly 10 years after the initial contract had been signed. Iran signed the US$ 800 million contract to buy the S-300 missile system in 2007, but Russia suspended their delivery three years later because of strong objections from the United States and Israel.

In 2016 a landmark nuclear deal between Iran and world powers went into practice under which Iran limited its nuclear activities in return for the lifting of sanctions.
