    Thus far, I know nothing of the motivations of the Iranian Parliament attackers. Might be related, might not.
    The Iranian Government was in no doubt about it.

    A very useful article from last year going through the various political and religious relations and affiliations between Iran, the MB and M.E. states. For Iran, political support for Palestine and political stances generally are of more significance than the Sunni Shia divide that has been so stoked and hyped up in recent years. Reasonably good relations with the MB, a Sunni movement, were until recently the norm for Iran.
