The attacker is believed to not be known to police.

The attacker approached the soldier from behind and threatened him with a knife while shouting slogans about the Islamic State terror group, reported French broadcaster BFMTV.

The unidentified man is said to have rushed at a patrol of soldiers wearing combat uniforms and brandishing assault rifles.

The man was taken to the main Chateletpolice station, and now faces a range of terrorist charges.

The soldier was a part of the country's Sentinelle group, a military operation set up to protect Paris in the aftermath of terror attacks that have left hundreds dead in recent years.

Recently, authorities said last month that six soldiers in Levallois, outside Paris, were hurt when a driver deliberately rammed into them.

According to a preliminary investigation, the assailant made statements referring to "Allah" and "Daesh" and was quickly seized by the soldier, a police source said. The attacker detained by police.

France has been the victim of a string of ISIS-inspired terror attacks in the past two years, most notably the November 2015 atrocities that claimed the lives of 130 people.

Frances's armed forces minister say the soldier was not injured.

" The man has been mastered, this is proof of professionalism and efficiency of soldiers of "Sentinel" in this mission of protection, has responded to minister for armed forces, Florence Parly, on Europe 1". One officer was hit in the head with the hammer, prompting police to fire at the attacker.
