The United Nations on Sunday called on Israel to show "maximum restraint and respect the right to freedom of peaceful assembly" and national security adviser Jake Sullivan expressed "serious concerns" about violence in Jerusalem.

Driving the news: Over 250 Palestinians and several Israeli police officers have been wounded since Friday during protests over planned evictions of Palestinian families from their homes in the city's east — which Sullivan also expressed concern about, per a White House statement.

  • Israeli police have used tear gas, stun grenades, water cannons and rubber bullets on protesters, who've thrown "rocks and water bottles" at officers, per NPR. The violence continued into Monday morning, AP notes.
  • Sullivan "encouraged the Israeli government to pursue appropriate measures to ensure calm during Jerusalem Day commemorations" on Monday, per the statement — a reference to celebrations of Israel capturing East Jerusalem in the 1967 war.

Of note: An annual march by hardline nationalist Israelis past holy sites in the area to mark Jerusalem Day is seen as "provocative," per AP.

  • Amos Gilad, a former high-ranking Israeli defense official, is among those calling for the march to be postponed or canceled, the BBC reports.
  • "The powder keg is burning and can explode at any time," Gilad said.
  • Israel's Supreme Court postponed f0r 30 days a hearing Sunday on the possible eviction of several Palestinian families in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem following the unrest.

The bottom line: As his opponents held talks on forming a government after he failed to do so earlier this month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "We will enforce law and order decisively and responsibly."

Jake Sullivan: Biden didn't think it was "inevitable" Taliban would take control

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Monday that President Biden did not believe it was "inevitable" that the Taliban would take control of Afghanistan, laying the blame at the feet of the Afghan security forces who "decided not to step up and fight for their country."

Why it matters: Biden is under fire for comments he made just over a month ago, when he dismissed comparisons to the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam and said it was "highly unlikely" that the Taliban would control the entire country.

FDA advisory panel recommends Pfizer boosters for those 65 and up

A key Food and Drug Administration advisory panel on Friday overwhelming voted against recommending Pfizer vaccine booster shots for younger Americans, but unanimously recommended approving the third shots for individuals 65 and older, as well as those at high-risk of severe COVID-19.

Why it matters: While the votes are non-binding, and the FDA must still make a final decision, Friday's move pours cold water on the Biden administration's plan to begin administering boosters to most individuals who received the Pfizer vaccine later this month.

France recalls ambassadors from U.S. and Australia over submarine deal

France has taken the extraordinary step of recalling its ambassadors to the U.S. and Australia after both countries blindsided their French allies with a new military pact and submarine contract, the French Foreign Ministry announced on Friday.

The backstory: While sealing an agreement with the U.S. and U.K. to acquire nuclear submarines, Australia ripped up an existing $90 billion submarine deal with France. That led senior French officials to accuse the U.S. of a "stab in the back."
