A pair of new mobile apps hopes to help Palestinians navigate their way around snarled traffic at Israeli checkpoints in the West Bank, offering a high-tech response to constant, burdensome and often seemingly random restrictions on movement. The free apps of “Azmeh”, which means traffic jam in Arabic, and “Qalandiya”, the name of a major Israeli checkpoint on the outskirts of Beit-ul-Moqaddas, join a slew of other global traffic apps, AP reported.
