The UN General Assembly voted 151-6 to disavow Israeli ties to Yerushalayim as part of six anti-Israel resolutions it approved on Thursday, Tovah Lazaroff reports for the Jerusalem Post. The 6 were Israel, the U.S., Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and Nauru. Nine countries abstained: Australia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Honduras, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, South Sudan and Togo.
All the EU member states voted against Israel.
The resolution on Yerushalayim stated that “any actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever.” The General Assembly also approved a resolution sponsored by Syria which condemned Israel’s continued presence on the Golan Heights. It was approved with 105 nations in favor, 6 against, and 58 who abstained.
