Officers at the scene then opened fire on the attacker, hitting him in the lower body.
A bomb squad officer then approached the wounded attacker, who pulled out another knife and tried to stab the officer.
A Border Police officer then opened fire, hitting the attacker, who was subdued. Police said the Palestinian assailant was identified as a 24-year-old resident of Kalandiya.
Palestinian assailants have carried out five attempted stabbings against Israelis on Saturday. In addition to the latest attack at Kalandia, three stabbings occurred in the West Bank city of Hebron and one attack was carried out in Jerusalem.
