Palestinians and most of the global community consider settlements built in territory captured by Israel after the 1967 war as illegal under worldwide law.
The Palestinians claim the territory captured by Israel from Jordan in the 1967 war, for their future state, a demand that has wide worldwide support.
The resolution was adopted with 14 votes in favor and one abstention from the United States at the 15-member council.
The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, then announced that permits which had been given to Palestinians so that they could visit relatives in Israel during Ramadan and the Eid al-Fitr holiday would be revoked.
The Israeli Prime Minister made the announcment as U.S. envoys prepared to discuss a new peace push.
Netanyahu said in a Facebook post Tuesday he was proud to break ground on Israel's first new West Bank settlement in decades, fulfilling a pledge to resettle residents evacuated from an illegal settlement outpost earlier this year.
Netanyahu has billed the settlement as the first new one established from scratch in the West Bank in almost two decades. Instead, construction during that period has expanded existing settlements or taken place in unauthorized outposts like Amona.
Trump said at the time: "President Abbas assures me he is ready to work toward [peace] in good faith, and Prime Minister Netanyahu has promised the same".
Kushner, who has an expansive list of responsibilities under Trump, is traveling to the region with Jason Greenblatt, assistant to the President and special representative for worldwide negotiations.
Despite the reports of him and Mr Kushner being on shaky ground, Mr Trump has publicly remained completely supportive of his son-in-law.
Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon said the US push to revive the peace process appeared to be a serious effort.
Building starts on settler homes in the Israeli-occupied West Bank soared by 70 per cent in the year to March 2017, data released by the Central Bureau of Statistics showed yesterday.
Despite the criticism, however, Trump also asked Netanyahu last month to "hold back" on Israeli construction in Judea and in order to facilitate peacemaking efforts.
Netanyahu, however, faces political pressure from the settler movement, which wields heavy influence in his right-wing governing coalition.
Ahead of the arrival of the two envoys, the White House urged Israelies and Palestinians to "create an environment conducive to peacemaking".
A statement by Fatah carried on the official Palestinian news agency Wafa condemned the "killing" of the three Palestinians, without mentioning the circumstances leading up to their deaths.
