Saudi Arabia to host a mega joint military exercise for 30 days named 'GulfShield', which will take place in the Kingdom's Eastern Province. Air, Naval and Land Forces from GCC and other Arab/Islamic countries will be participating.

Any reason for the drill from geo political prospective? Or was it previously scheduled?

No reason, I think it is part of the military alliance led by Saudi Arabia. Interesting to note that Qatar is participating in the drill.
