The S-300PMU-2 Favorit have a range of about 124 miles, a larger warhead and a better guidance system than the previous version. Why increase the militarization in this area?
Russia sells a lot of arms for cash to Syria and it's construction firms are building pipelines and infrastructure there.
Clearly they want to be big players in the ME, witness the welcome Russia gave to Hamas leaders on their first foreign visit.
