Your guess is as good as mine, though I think that it will be much harder to convince them to resume allowing students now.
They've seen what the compliance rate is...
If we know that they don't check up on marrieds bidud, the corona team also know that...
Also the infection rate is much higher now.

The Coronavirus Cabinet is set to convene at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday to discussed Netanyahu’s request for new regulations for the lockdown.

The restrictions Netanyahu is expected to ask the Coronavirus Cabinet include the partial closure of Ben Gurion International Airport, limiting it to arriving flights while banning departures; the closure of synagogues; limitations on public protests; and the closure of much of the private sector economy.

In addition, the government is expected to request that recently retired physicians return to work to assist hospitals in handling coronavirus patients.

Hopefully when they open it, they'll open it for everybody with tests or something. Hard reset to the old policy.

No. Bibbi doesn't ever announce specifics because it's subject to kenneset ratification, which he can't be sure of

My guess - TLV closes for YK every year. This year they might start a little early and end a little later.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Haphazard make it up as you go rules.

IINM they couldn't get any law passed, so it's all up to government instated emergency regulations.

If they're not excluded, they're included. It's part of the general lockdown provisions which apply to anybody in Israel and citizenship is irrelevant. The government order allows for the Director General of the Transportation Ministry to allow exemptions, however those aren't in place yet. Travel, including flying, is still permitted for a vast list of essential needs from medical care to assistance to the elderly.
