The Al Aksa Foundation, a muslim group in Palestine on Tuesday condemned a long-time Israeli proposal to enlarge the section of the Western Wall allotted for women's prayer.

"There is no such thing as innocent work so long as the Aksa mosque is under occupation," said Zahi Nujeidat, spokesman for the Islamic Movement.

The Islamic group, which held an east Jerusalem press conference Tuesday to protest the Israeli plans, denies the existence of the Jewish temples on the Temple Mount and refers to the Western Wall as the al-Buraq wall, reported Jarusalem Post.

An Israeli state planning committee will approve the plan for the expansion of the women's section at the Western Wall.

Last month, a Chabad seminar about the temples was condemned by the organization as endangering the mosque.
