The words in brackets are the translator’s interpretation. Just like we surmise that Ramesses II was the Pharaoh at the time of Moses due to his building many monuments and was long lived, we can, with a pinch of salt, relate some history to the teachings of the Quran.

This does not mean we have to accept every hypothesis, or what our ancestors have told us it means, but “Do you not see what happened to the people of.....” means we are allowed to look at historical events in the past and expand our understanding of the Quran.

Makkah is not mentioned, but like I said in my first post there are a number of plausible explanations for the verses of the Quran.
