Palestinians take part in a protest near Erez crossing between Israel and the northern Gaza Strip April 21, 2010, against orders introduced by the Israeli military that human rights activists said last week could make almost any Palestinian liable for expulsion from the occupied West Bank. In a statement, the army played down any notion of mass deportation, saying the orders simply amended existing Israeli regulations to assure military "judicial oversight" in the extradition of anyone "residing illegally" in the West Bank.
