According to al-Nahrain-net News Agency, an unverified report of one of European intelligence agencies indicates that the Mossad, Israel’s foreign intelligence agency, has abducted a number of Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) commanders , diplomats and prominent officials at last Thursday’s stampede near the holy city of Mecca.
Al-Nahrain-net added that it also obtained information from European diplomatic sources in Brussels, suggesting that what deadly crush happened during the Stoning of the Devil ceremony (ramī aj-jamarāt) in Mecca was in fact a joint, pre-planned sabotage in order to kidnap a number of high-ranking IRGC commanders and Iranian diplomats.
Al-Nahrain-net exposé on Mecca stampede which is based on preliminary intelligence reports indicate that Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies have probably collaborated to abduct IRGC commanders, diplomats and staff working in Iran’s Supreme Leader’s office, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. According to this report the former Iranian ambassador to Lebanon, Ghazanfar Roknabadi, is believed to have been kidnapped in the deadly stampede.
Mr. Roknabadi is considered an eminent member of Supreme Leader’s office staff and a figure who is well-informed regarding the secrets of the Hizbullah missile armament by Tehran.
Ali Asghar Fouladgar, the head of institute for IRGC strategic studies is also identified as missing. Hussein Danesh , Fo’ad Mashghali , Ammar Miransari and Seyyed Hasan Hasani are all members of IRGC or Iran’s Supreme Leader’s office for pilgrimage who are declared missing.

Saudi Arabian support for Israel is well established.
A senior Iranian official says the recent deadly crush in Mina, near the holy Saudi city of Mecca, during the Hajj pilgrimage rituals is “suspicious.”
“This incident and its circumstances are suspicious because some of our senior officials have been killed or gone missing in this incident,” Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, said on Tuesday.
He added that the Saudi government is dodging its responsibility in dealing with the consequences of this incident.
