capital one charges 2.50 for each atm withdrawal but no forex fee. beware of the non bank atm's that are very common in israel that add on therir own fees for an atm withdrawal

TD and CS do not charge Forex or ATM fees (nor if you swipe).CS refunds fees automatically in the US (no minimum bal) but out of country you must save receipts if charged (most bank ATMs in Israel don't charge a fee, however, there are exceptions for example ATM on Bar Ilan by bus stop to Bnei Braq).

idk if this is what you wanted, but after you get a debit card that doesnt charged for atm withdrawls & no foreighn trasaction fee (like td bank) there is a free atm machine on kikar hashabbos in geula (bank hapoalim), & on the corner of givas moshe & ohalei yosef in shmuel hanavi area (mechentile bank)

as stated above 95% of bank ATMs are free in Israel (since the fee structure in Israel is different).

 when I went in to pay off my CC with some coins ;-) , I was given something about their free checking and when I asked about withdrawls from Foreign ATMs I was told its $5 each time and nothing else.

 due to the accts I have at Chase I get 4 free withdrawls per month and only pay a 3% fee, so as long as I will be taking < $170 altogether (cant remember the last time I did an ATM withdrawl Overseas) Chase is a better deal for me
