are you allowed to leave Israel to a green country  and return without a permit, or you still need a permit?

You still need to have a permit or israeli citizenship.
It's been reported to be under review but no change announced as far as I know

you need an ishur, student visa is not enough.
you can fill it out 24 before the flight or when you land.

Has an Ishur.
That what I thought. You can fill it out when your waiting in the passport line and get it approved on the spot, correct?

Officially the only way to avoid quarantine is to have a positive COVID-19 test followed by two negative tests.
what forms do I need to fill out for this? and do I need to give them notice in advance or I can show up at the airport with the supporting documents?

You first go into quarantine then submit the documents to MoH to cancel it

yes
I do not think there is a way to just show up and not quarantine, you must go in to quarantine and send the misrad habriut all your tests.

I do not think there is a way to just show up and not quarantine, you must go in to quarantine and send the misrad habriut all your tests.
Finally found it written clearly here.
"
All returnees from abroad must observe 14 days of strict quarantine. As we have previously reported, there are many rumors, and much misinformation regarding exemptions from quarantine.
The only way to exit quarantine early is by receiving an official, written exemption from the Ministry of Health. There has been considerable confusion about how this process works. The Chaim VíChessed Medical Department, headed by Mrs. Nechama Nulman and Mrs. Shani Warsager, has held extensive discussions with senior Health Ministry staff on this matter, and we are now pleased to provide detailed instructions for this process.
Exemptions are only possible for those who have previously tested positive for Corona, with a PCR test, then tested negative abroad with a PCR test, and finally, have tested negative again, in Israel. Having antibodies is irrelevant.
If you have the above three test results, you must obtain a letter from a doctor in Israel, in which the doctor recommends that you be exempted from quarantine.
Once you have all the above, download and fill out this document. Fill out a separate form for each family member. Then email the document, along with all of your test results and the doctors recommendation to bidud[member=23435]Moh[/member].gov.il.
You should receive a response within 48 hours. Until you receive a written exemption from the Health Ministry, you must remain in quarantine."

If you have a lab results of a positive then a negative for corona and you are lucky that magen David is by the airport when you are, AFTER you go through the quarantine forms and passports, by the exit before the suitcases. Magen David checks your lab paper and does a corona test on the spot (again they are not always there) you can exit quarantine when you get the results if you test negative.
Please note that regulations change and you canít huca.
It also seams that if you quarantine in not so mainstream area (not yerushalaim or tlv) more like raanana, Ashdod, etc. They donít check on you. But ymmv.
Also be nice and relaxed by the quarantine person because they profile you and if they think you are a trouble maker they check you more.
Good luck
