WAZE: You can avoid navigation in a dangerous area

The WAZE company said on Monday evening that its navigation application should not have led soldiers into the Samarian Palestinian Authority city of Jenin and a lynch attempt.

A company statement said, "We cannot refer to details of a specific trip, but we emphasize that the app has a designated default setting that prevents navigation through areas marked as dangerous or prohibited to Israelis. In addition, there is another alert that jumps out when deviating from the route or entering this kind of prohibited area."
