Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said a Palestinian wielding a knife had approached security guards at the Qalandia checkpoint near Jerusalem.
"The Israeli forces at the scene shot the assailant, resulting in his death,” he said in a statement.
No injuries were reported among Israeli soldiers.
More than 245 Palestinians have been killed since an uptick in Israeli-Palestinian violence began in October 2015, according to Palestinian figures.
Israeli authorities say at least 42 Israelis have been killed over the same period.
