Many workers - maybe 20-30 that I could see in the webcam image, and a cement mixer truck with its lights on.

Actually Mekkah royal clock tower is build on higher elevation, close to 300m ASL, making the highest point of the tower close to 900m. which is 100m+ difference from Kingdom tower. If no mountain between them is above 800m, (which i check google map and there isnt a >800m mountain). It not impossible to spot each other on either side at the highest point.

If you don't Consider the B2 and B1 and the yellow Construction Parts on the core, yes. it is 28.

This tower is way behind schedule.
I wonder what caused it.

Also at the moment, the pace seems lower than in that schedule.
So, they will not be able to catch up.
On the contrary, delay becomes more and more..

Im a little confused with this tower

Is what we see in the above photos just the core ?

And what is the scaffolding up the sides ?

Is this to build the floor plates ?

Those big concrete walls that are being built by the yellow Construction Thingies, Are the buttresses Which is sorta like a part of the core. and the big Concrete thing in the middle is the actual core.
