UN General Assembly votes to upgrade Palestine status 

BBC News: The United Nations General Assembly voted to grant the Palestinians non-member observer state status — a move opposed by Israel and the US. The resolution passed with 138 voting in favor, 9 voting no and 41 nations abstaining.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told the assembly the vote was the “last chance to save the two-state solution” with Israel.

Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, said the bid “doesn’t advance peace - it pushes it backwards”.
