Dr. Beshir Marzouk, astronomer expert at QCH, said that during the inferior conjunction, the centre of three celestial objects (Sun, Earth, and Mercury) will be aligned on a straight line, moreover, Mercury will be in between Sun and Earth, and it will pass very close to the Sun so it will be impossible to observe Mercury today.
