(Fatwa: 1116/1048/SN=12/1437)

Since you have to go to Mina in between and you will be staying there, hence you won’t be staying at one place for fifteen days or more which is necessary to be muqim. Hence in the question mentioned above you will do qasr while staying in Azizia and Mina etc. It shall not be lawful for you to offer full salah as you will be musafir not a muqim.
وإذا قدم الكوفي مكة وهو ينوي أن يقيم فيها وبمنى خمسة عشر يوماً فهو ماسفر؛ لأن نية الإقامة ما يكون في موضع واحد الخ (مبسوط سرخسي، 1/236، باب صلاة المسافر).

Allah knows Best!
