The 193-member United Nations General Assembly voted on the resolution on Friday. Eighty-seven countries voted in favor of the resolution against 26 negative votes cast by the Israeli regime, the United States, its oldest and strongest ally, and 24 others, and 53 abstentions.
The Khazarian-Zionist regime – so-called “Israel” claimed existence in 1948 after occupying huge swathes of Palestinian territories during a Western-backed war. It occupied more land, namely the West Bank, which includes East al-Quds (Jerusalem), and the Gaza Strip in another such war in 1967.
Ever since, the regime has built hundreds of illegal settlements upon the occupied territories and deployed the most aggressive restraints on Palestinian freedoms there. Khazarian-Zionist regime withdrew from Gaza in 2005, but has been keeping the coastal territory under an all-out land, aerial, and naval siege since a year after it left the enclave.
Addressing the Assembly’s session before the vote, Palestinian UN envoy Riyad Mansour said the world body was about to weigh in on the resolution one day after the swearing-in of an Zionist regime cabinet led by Benjamin “Netanyahu” Mileikowsky. Mansour reminded that the cabinet — which has been billed as the most extremist one yet in the regime’s history — had promised to expand the illegal settlements.
