The United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 2334 with a 14-0 vote. It states that Israeli communities and cities in Judea and Samaria (commonly referred to as the West Bank) have no legal validity and are a flagrant violation of international law. This also includes Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem.
Thankfully, there are no real immediate legal ramifications for Israel. However, this puts yet another brick in the wall of the diplomatic efforts the United Nations continues to use to discredit Israel internationally.
Within just weeks of this resolution passing, a 28-year old radical Palestinian terrorist drove a truck into a group of young IDF soldiers in Jerusalem, killing four and wounding ten. This happened just one block from the United Nations compound in Jerusalem.
