PA: 7 prisoners held under order canceling amnesty

Seems like this military order followed immediately after 1650.

"The prisoners rights group Addameer says Israel has detained a number of prisoners released in the deal by invoking a relatively new provision of Military Order 1651."

"Impact of Israeli Military Order No.1650 on Palestinians’ Rights to Legally Reside in Their Own Country" - Asem Khalil, CARIM Analytic and Synthetic Notes

"A new Israeli military Order no. 1650 regarding the Prevention of Infiltration took effect on April 2010. Human-rights organizations expressed alarm at the new powers Israeli military forces will have in dealing with Palestinians who do not hold ‘lawful documents’ of stay in the occupied Palestinian territory. 

The objective of this paper is to investigate how this new order fits within a legal system Israel has set up in the West Bank and Gaza Strip through hundreds of military declarations and orders. Three aspects will be analyzed: first, the way residency status is regulated determining which residents are legal and which illegal; second, the regulation for border crossings and the movement of Palestinians within the occupied Palestinian territory and abroad; third, family unification of Palestinians in the occupied territory. 

These examples will show how this new order is part of an overarching policy that has been in crescendo since 1967: maximizing Israeli control of (Palestinian) land and minimizing the number of (Palestinian) people. The fact that this policy is targeting a specific national group and the fact that it is accompanied by a persistent settlement policy in the occupied Palestinian territories renders these policies, not only discriminatory, but also racist and colonial."

Israel Under Review by UN Human Rights Committee

Here's a quote regarding Military Order 1650 from the Concluding Observations of the Human Rights Committee, which convened in Geneva two weeks ago for the third periodic review of Israel's compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

“The State party should carry out a thorough review of the status of all long-term residents in the West Bank and ensure that they are issued a valid permit and registered in the population registers. The State party should refrain from expelling long-term residents of the West Bank to the Gaza Strip based on their former addresses in the Gaza Strip. In light of the State party’s obligations under article 7, the Committee recommends that the State party review military orders No. 1649 and 1650 to ensure that any person subject to a deportation order is heard and may appeal the order to an independent, judicial authority.”

Amira Hass: The Brain Tumor Method of Leaving Gaza

"...About 35,000 Palestinian are candidates for expulsion from their homes, according to the amendment to the order on infiltration that went into effect in April of this year. These are Palestinians who are living in constant fear, people who restrict their movements ahead to time to avoid being caught by an alert soldier who will discover their criminal offense: having the wrong address."

New Military Orders Facilitating the Deportation of Gazans From West Bank and East Jerusalem - Al-Haq

Al-Haq's second Alternative Report addresses Israeli's violations of the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights with respect to freedom of movement within the occupied Palestinian territory, including Military Orders 1649 and 1650:

"These military orders dramatically broaden the existing definition of infiltration in the occupied West Bank, criminalizing and subjecting to deportation any person present in the area who does not hold a permit issued by the Commander of the IDF. If implemented, these orders would facilitate the mass deportation or transfer of Palestinians and other protected persons from the West Bank, in clear violation of international law."
