RAMALLAH, West Bank—Palestinians have erupted in wild cheers, hugging each other and honking car horns after the United Nations voted to grant them, at least formally, what they have long yearned for—a state of their own.
In the central celebration in the West Bank city of Ramallah, hundreds crowding into the main square waved Palestinian flags and chanted “God is great” after the U.N. General Assembly vote.
It accepted “Palestine” as a non-member observer state with a vote of 138 in favor, nine against and 41 abstentions.
