Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says a UN call to end illegal Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land is “shameful”.
He stressed that Israel would not abide by Friday’s vote at the 15-member UN Security Council.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ spokesman said the resolution was a “big blow to Israeli policy”.
The document was passed after the US refused to veto it, breaking with long-standing American practice.
Washington has traditionally sheltered Israel from condemnatory resolutions.
The Egyptian-drafted resolution had been withdrawn after Israel asked US President-elect Donald Trump to intervene, but it was proposed again by Malaysia, New Zealand, Senegal and Venezuela.
It was adopted by 14 votes to zero, with one abstention.
The issue of Jewish settlements is one of the most contentious between Israel and the Palestinians, who see them as an obstacle to peace.
