> In Ramallah, Palestinians said that the vote was unlikely to lead to change on the ground.>> Nothing will change. It's all just politics and talk.
The moment of celebration for the Palestinians. The UN Security Council passing a resolution demanding an end to Israel's settlement building. For the Palestinian government, it's a moment they've long waited for.>> We hope that this clear message to the Israeli people is that they must accept the international community's call, to stop settlement activities, to stop the occupation.
>> The vote passed after the US abstained in a sign of Washington's fury over Israel's refusal to stop building on land claimed by the Palestinians. But Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem say they'll continue to do what's right for them, regardless of the UN vote.>>
It was always against it. We'll continue as always to do what we see right for the benefit of the state, and the people of Israel.>>
We really weren't expecting this, but hopefully it won't just be politics talking, ink on paper. We want it to be implemented on the ground.>> The votes also being seen as a parting shot from President Obama to President-elect Donald Trump. Trump urged Washington to veto the resolution, and his vow to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Any sense of victory for the Palestinians is likely to be short-lived. The resolution's expected to be ignored by the incoming Trump administration.
