During the incident, the terrorist approached the soldier wearing a "press" flak jacket and carrying camera.

Magen David Adom paramedics said they evacuated a 20-year-old Israeli in moderate condition with a stab wound to his upper body. The soldier has been taken to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The attack came as Hamas called for a "day of rage" against Israel as two weeks of violence continued.
