"They are trying to rewrite Jewish history and the history of the region", Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon told Agence France-Presse. It undermines the trust that is needed for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process to be successful.
Israeli had failed to have the motion on Hebron blocked despite the personal intervention of the USA ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley.
Hebron is the largest Palestinian city in the occupied West Bank with a population of some 200,000.
The worldwide community considers it to be occupied. And in 2012, the United Nations General Assembly chose to upgrade the status of Palestine to a nonmember observer state of the United Nations. Israel says the territory's fate, along with other core issues like security, should be resolved in negotiations. The tomb is located in Hebron, in the southwest corner of the West Bank. Israel says the future of the settlements also must be decided through talks.
The site is already on Israel's list of national heritage sites, but the Jewish communities in Hebron have long struggled with the Israeli government for more resources, including to for funds to build a roof to cover the man Jewish sanctuary.
There is frequent friction between the two populations.
The resolution is seen as a victory for Palestinian diplomacy and would be cited by Israel as a fresh example of what it alleges is the UN's inherent anti-Israel bias. Although their rocky relationship goes back decades, recent resolutions by UNESCO also drew outrage in Israel for diminishing the deep Jewish ties to Jerusalem.
Israeli officials have slammed the decision - the second anti-Israeli resolution passed by the United Nations in less than a week following the World Heritage Committee decision denying Israel's claims to the Old City of Jerusalem.
The city is regarded as the second most important site in Judaism, and one of Islam's four holy cities.
"In another thousand years, the Cave of the Patriarchs will remain under Jewish sovereignty and UNESCO will cease to exist as a heritage organization, " said.
The Palestinians hailed the decision.
Jewish tradition claims that Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob and Leah, are buried at the site.
