UNGA adopts five resolutions in favor of Palestine

Dec. 1, 2018 1:05 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 3, 2018 12:41 P.M.)
NEW YORK (Ma'an) -- The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) voted in favor of five resolutions regarding Palestine and a sixth resolution on the Golan Heights, on Friday evening.

One of the most important resolutions adopted called upon member states not to recognize any measures taken by Israel in Jerusalem and to maintain the current status-quo in the holy city.

Palestine's Permanent Observer to the UN, Riyad Mansour, said that "by voting in favor of the five resolutions, the international community affirms its support of our national cause, despite the efforts made by the US administration in international forums to resist this."

UNGA also adopted a sixth resolution on the occupied Syrian Golan, demanding the withdrawal of Israel from all of the territory and affirming Syria's sovereignty over it, in line with the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council.

On November 17, the UNGA voted in favor of eight resolutions on Palestine and a ninth on the Syrian Golan Heights.
