It is worth noting that the Mina catastrophe was the direct result of extreme heat, suffocation and pushing Hajj pilgrims.
Eyewitness reports from Mina suggest that the catastrophe wasn’t an incident but a controlled crime.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Eyewitness reports indicate that there was deliberate and serious negligence of Saudi aid workers after the stampede to deliver medical services and that caused the mounting number of victims to grow to nearly 5000 people.

Similarities exist between Saudi and Israeli regimes' measures regarding types of military operations and their focus on military targets.
(SALEM, Ore.) - The Saudi regime's aggression against Yemen for the last five months has proved that it follows the same war patterns and conduct that Israel has adopted in its assaults against Gaza throughout the past decade, particularly the 51-day war in 2014 against the Gaza strip.
