The vote on the resolution was 87-57 in favor with 33 abstentions, a majority below the two-thirds that was required.

That move increased the chances that the United States measure will be adopted, as well as the Palestinian-drafted resolution.

"While it did not achieve a two-thirds majority, this is the first time that a majority of countries have voted against Hamas and I commend each of the 87 countries that took a principled stand against Hamas".

It was still significant that a majority of countries in the General Assembly voted to condemn Hamas - a first in the history of the UN.
