There were conflicting reports on the attacker’s condition, with Israeli medics saying he had been taken to hospital and Palestinian officials reporting him dead.
The incident follows an attack on Sunday that saw a Palestinian stab an Israeli woman to death inside her home in another West Bank settlement.
