Tensions have been high in the city over the threatened eviction of Palestinian families from parts of East Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah district.
Israel Police decided Monday morning to bar Jews from entering Jerusalem's Temple Mount flashpoint holy site on Jerusalem Day, and were set to also rule on whether to allow a continuous celebratory parade by nationalist Jews amid warnings from security officials that the Flag March could lead to a further escalation in violence and calls from the United States to ensure calm.
The UN Security Council will discuss the issue later on Monday.
A spokesman for Mandelblit said the court agreed to receive a future submission from the attorney-general and that a new session would be scheduled within 30 days. At the same time, he said, "We emphatically reject the pressures not to build in Jerusalem".
The envoys, through a joint press statement, said they were "closely monitoring" the situation in East Jerusalem, including in the Old City and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.
Violence, which has been ongoing for several nights, continued in Jerusalem as Palestinians clashed with Israeli police on Saturday, leaving many injured.
Palestinian anger was further exacerbated by a march by ultra-nationalist Jewish extremists, close to the same area, held in protest at a spate of videos posted on social media that showed Palestinians assaulting ultra-Orthodox Jews in the city, and by revenge assaults on Palestinians by Jewish extremists.
Dozens of Palestinians were wounded in violent confrontations with police in Jerusalem overnight from Saturday to Sunday, when Muslims marked Laylat al-Qadr, or the "night of destiny", the holiest period of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. Police said 15 people were arrested at another protest in the northern city of Haifa.
Whether further violence will erupt could also depend on another event scheduled for Monday - an annual march by Israeli flag-waving Jewish youth to Jerusalem's Old City, whose population is largely Palestinian, to mark what Israel celebrates as Jerusalem's reunification in 1967.
Around 100 Palestinians were injured during the clashes, according to Palestinian medics.
"This development of events is perceived with deep concern in Moscow".
The violence, along with the planned evictions in east Jerusalem, have drawn condemnations from Israel's Arab allies and expressions of concern from the United States, Europe and the United Nations.
There were also signs the violence was beginning to spread.
Late Sunday, Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired four rockets toward Israel, setting off air raid sirens in southern city of Ashkelon and nearby areas, the Israeli military said. There were no reports of injuries.
Israel responded to the earlier launches by closing the fishing zone off Gaza, a typical sanction in response to launches from the Palestinian enclave. Israeli authorities have defended their actions as maintaining security, but Muslims accuse Israel of threatening their freedom to worship.
Hundreds of Gaza protesters had amassed along the Israeli border late Sunday, some armed with more incendiary devices, AFP reporters said. "I pray that it be a place of encounter and not of clashes, a place of prayer and peace", Francis told the public gathered in St. Peter's Square for his traditional Sunday noon remarks.
Palestinians and global rights groups portray the planned evictions as an ongoing campaign by Israel to drive Palestinians from traditionally Arab neighbourhoods, especially in the heart of Jerusalem.
A day earlier, the Israeli government played down any state involvement in the Sheikh Jarrah controversy, which the Foreign Ministry cast as a "real-estate dispute between private parties".
The flare-up in hostilities comes at a crucial point in Israel's political crisis after longtime leader Netanyahu failed to form a governing coalition. If they succeed, Netanyahu would be pushed to the opposition for the first time in 12 years.
