I'm from Iran.
This launch was only a rocket, without any satellites.
They say that the Simorgh rocket can put payloads up to250 Kgs, in orbits of 500 Km and higher.
In some of the News, orbits of up to 1000 Kms were mentioned.

After reading some (Google translated) Iranian news items, it is unclear to me
whether this was really a satellite launch or just a rocket test launch. The
non-English news items do not seem to mention a satellite.
