US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has arrived in Saudi Arabia, as he continues his shuttle diplomacy amid the ongoing Gaza war.

The Biden administration is engaging aggressively with Mideast allies to build a coalition against Hamas, keep other actors from joining the war against Israel and try and secure the release of the hostages from Gaza.

Over the past day and a half, Blinken has visited Israel, Jordan, Qatar and Bahrain.
