The UN General Assembly approved an Israeli-sponsored resolution on Thursday condemning any denial of the Holocaust and urging all nations and social media companies to take active measures to combat antisemitism and Holocaust denial or distortion.

The 193-member world body approved the resolution by consensus, without a vote  and with a bang of a gavel by Assembly President Abdulla Shahid.
