Two Palestinians were shot dead by the Israeli army in the clashes earlier on Saturday morning.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard was seriously wounded and his attacker arrested.
President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania enjoy the traditional inaugural luncheon on Capitol hill on inauguration day. The Obama Administration made multiple efforts -selling Israel the most advanced fighters, funding anti-missile batteries, and signing a ten-year foreign-aid memorandum-to reassure the Israeli public of America's concern for Israel's security. And that people ranting about death to Jews are not part of any hypothetical "peace process".
Vice President Pence will travel to the region in the coming days to reaffirm our commitment to work with partners throughout the Middle East to defeat radicalism that threatens the hopes and dreams of future generations.
I put this decision in the latter category on moral and historical grounds. The residents, like many of Israel's Arab minority, sympathize with the Palestinians of the West Bank and often openly identify with them. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a "courageous and just decision", while some 250 Israeli rabbis, including the chief rabbi of the Sephardi Jewish community, signed a letter thanking Mr Trump.

Violence has erupted after US President Donald Trump's move to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital. International opposition has been widespread, including America's closest allies in Europe. "Fortunately, there was a positive response from all the countries in the world", Abbas said.
Lebanese security forces fired tear gas at demonstrators outside the US Embassy in Beirut on Sunday, while the Arab League has called on the President to reverse his decision. The council scheduled an emergency meeting on Friday.
"When I came into office, I promised to look at the world's challenges with open eyes and very fresh thinking".
"[The] U.S. always was a middle man between the two parties".
Jerusalem is today, and must remain, a place where Jews pray at the Western Wall, where Christians walk the Stations of the Cross, and where Muslims worship at al-Aqsa Mosque. China is now Israel's third-biggest trading partner after the United States and the European Union, and its second-largest export destination. Netanyahu is to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron, who has called Trump's decision "regrettable".
Trump's announcement defied decades of diplomacy in the quest to bring peace to Israel. We roamed the Ramallah streets, where businesses had closed up shop as a sign of protest. Its people are brilliant, proud, and diverse, vibrant and strong.
