What's the previous=yes parameter?

Denny Vrandečić-2
An example here:

https://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%92'%D7%95%D7%A0%D7%AA%D7%9F_%D7%A4%D7%A8%D7%99%D7%99%D7%A1?previous=yes

I couldn't find a description of the "previous" parameter. Does someone
know (and how do I find this out by myself)?

(I was looking here:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Parameters_to_index.php but could not
find anything, so I assume this comes from some extension, but I do not
know how to figure that out)

What did you do to get to a page that had that parameter?

Parameters can come from anywhere, so its hard to say. But I would say
most likely its from javascript (either common.js or gadget) [OTOH:
searching for insource:previous doesn't give me anything]. Most of the
time, MediaWiki would convert that to a url with index.php in it.

It comes up as the search result on a few Google queries, e.g. here:

https://www.google.com/search?q=%D7%92%27%D7%A8%D7%9E%D7%99+%D7%A7%D7%95%D7%A8%D7%91%D7%99%D7%9F&oq=%D7%92%27%D7%A8%D7%9E%D7%99+%D7%A7%D7%95%D7%A8%D7%91%D7%99%D7%9F&aqs=chrome..69i57j0.319j0j7&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=91&ie=UTF-8&hl=he
