Is this possible wit the actual Iranian launchers? Iran to send 3 satellites into space Saturday: Iran Space Agency!
1. Space does not necessarily mean orbit,
2. The mass of the individual satellite can be small
so
3. yes, it is possible.

1. "Fazeli said at a press conference on Wednesday that Nahid, Qaem and Fajr satellites will be launched into orbit on Saturday on National Space Technology Day, Mehr news agency reported."

2. Nahid and Fajr are large enough to need an individual Safir (I dom't expect Simorgh before the Summer).

3. Upgraded Safir?

Probably this is another error in translation from Farsi to English, but I think we can expect a launch this weekend.

What satellites did the report mention? I remember that the current Iranian rockets have a maximum LEO payload of a couple dozen kg, so maybe they are large cubesat sized?

The Nahid, Qaem and Fajr satellites.

The third one apparently is around 50 kg with a cold gas thruster (which the Iranians have yet to try), while the first one is built by college students so probably won't be that big. Maybe they will need a small solid kick motor (which might push the Safir LEO payload to somewhere around 200 kg) and try out multiple payload deployment structures, but I can see no technical issues that can prevent such a launch....

Don't bet on it. Probably a mistake by presstv. According to ISNA:
http://isna.ir/fa/news/91111106971/%D9%87%D8%B2%DB%8C%D9%86%D9%87-%D8%B3%D9%81%D8%B1-%D9%85%DB%8C%D9%85%D9%88%D9%86-%D9%BE%DB%8C%D8%B4%DA%AF%D8%A7%D9%85-%D8%A8%D9%87-%D9%81%D8%B6%D8%A7-%D9%BE%D8%B1%D8%AA%D8%A7%D8%A8-%D9%85%D8%A7%D9%87%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%B1%D9%87

 وی تصریح کرد: در مراسم بزرگداشت روز فناوری فضایی نمونه مهندسی ماهواره قائم و نمونه پروازی ماهواره ناهید رونمایی خواهد شد. همچنین دستاوردهای حوزه دفاعی در زمینه فضایی نیز رونمایی خواهند شد.

وی با بیان اینکه ماهواره فجر طی روزها و هفته‌های آینده به فضا پرتاب خواهد شد، گفت: درصددیم ماهواره شریف دانشگاه صنعتی شریف را نیز تا پایان سال به فضا پرتاب کنیم در غیراینصورت اوایل سال آینده به فضا پرتاب خواهد شد.

Quick translation: They will unveil the prototype of Qaem and the final version of Nahid. Fajr will be sent to orbit in the coming days or weeks. Sharifsat will we sent by the end of the Iranian year or at the beginning of next year.

From http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/01/30/286338/iran-to-send-zafar-satellite-into-orbit/

"The president of Iran’s University of Science and Technology says the Islamic Republic plans to send its domestically-produced satellite Zafar (Triumph) into space within the next eight months.

Saeed Jabal-Ameli told reporters on Wednesday that the satellite would be launched into space by the summer of the Iranian year 1392 (September 2013)."

Iran to launch three satellites tomorrow

Hamid Fazeli, president of the Iranian Space Agency, said that his country will launch three satellites into space Saturday, February 2, 2013. These include three satellites Fajr, Nahid and Qaem. Tehran also hopes to orbit the Sharifsat by March 20, 2013 and still Toloo satellite in the near future according to the statements of Mr. Fazeli. Last week, Tehran had sent a monkey into space ...

Ahmadinejad to unveil Nahid Satellite soon

TEHRAN, Feb.2 (MNA) – The President of Iran’s Space Agency (ISA) says Iranian Nahid satellite will be unveiled in February, 2nd 2013 (today), Iran’s National Space Technology Day.

Hamid Fazeli said that Islamic Republic’s president will unveil this project.

He also provided comments on Nahid’s features and added that the Agency would launch Nahid by Safir- 1B rocket launcher to space.

Fazeli pointed to Nahid’s main feature as being imaging. “Nahid is the only satellite with folding solar panels,” he added. “All Iranian made satellites had panels fixed on themselves. Nahid’s panels provide folding capability,” he asserted.

He maintained that technology used in Nahid was unique, and that Nahid would have a perigee of 250Km, and an apogee of 370Km.

Fazeli also said that Iran has been working to develop more advanced and capable rocket launchers, adding that “Simorgh is the result of such attempts, and Qoqnoos (Phoenix) rocket launcher will be also developed in the future.”
