The United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, has landed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia commencing his fifth diplomatic tour in the Middle East since the start of the Israeli Occupation aggression against the Gaza Strip.

Blinken will visit the West Bank, the Israeli Occupation, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt all until next Thursday, according to the US Department of State.

The tour aims to make progress in the recent ceasefire proposal between the Israeli Occupation and Hamas. A senior Hamas official said that the group will deliver its response “very soon” to the proposals set forward in the meeting in Paris in which Egyptian, Qatari, and American officials took part in.
