"As a force, Israel is trying to alter the historical nature and annex Jerusalem in particular, an act against the United Nations' resolutions which all state that Jerusalem is an occupied city and an integral part of the occupied Palestinian territories on the borders of 1967".

Netanyahu's plan, which includes a new elevator to the Western Wall and a cable car project, is aimed at boosting Jerusalem's tourism.

Qanua also called it "a consequence of Trump's visit that provided the green light for Israel to persist in its crimes and violations".

While cabinet meetings are typically held in the prime minster's office, Netanyahu said, "On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the liberation and unification of the city of Jerusalem, we are holding the government meeting here in the Western Wall Tunnels".

U.S. President Donald Trump prepares to leave a note at the Western Wall in Jerusalem May 22, 2017.

"The deeper the learning based on the Israeli curriculum, the more we will continue to strengthen the education system in east Jerusalem - because this is how we build a future".

Elkin praised the proposal as "significant" and "dramatic", adding that it would "influence the future of youth in the Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem and their integration into Israeli society in the long term".

Additionally, a tunnel will be constructed in order to allow pedestrians access from the elevator's exit to the security gate at the entrance of the Western Wall promenade. The cable car can serve about 3000 visitors an hour in each direction and will travel at speeds of up to 21 kilometers an hour.

The resolution also described as null and void any decision by the Israeli parliament, its supreme court, or any other Israeli authority that would pertain to Jerusalem al-Quds. Even though no digging has taken place in those areas, the issue remains a flash point between Israelis and Palestinians.

Palestinian officials angrily condemned the event noting that in addition to being a provocation, it was insensitive to do so on the first day of the Muslim Holy Month of Ramadan.

The cable car will offer a transportation solution to problems related to the inaccessibility of the Western Wall.
