The soldier was lightly injured in the attack, with wounds to his upper body, apparently inflicted with a pair of scissors.
Another person was injured as well.
Magen David Adom paramedics provided first aid at the scene, the rescue service reported.
After grabbing the soldier’s weapon, the attacker fled to a nearby apartment building, where he was cornered by police.
Law enforcement entered the building and shot and killed him.
It wasn’t initially clear whether the attacker was a Palestinian or an Arab citizen of Israel.
Earlier Wednesday, a young Palestinian woman stabbed an Israeli man in the Old City. The man, who was moderately injured, used his personal firearm to shoot the woman, seriously injuring her.
