Wow. So these were Israelis that entered Switzerland with what kind of passport, and what was the quarantine requirement?

The land borders are open. Switzerland may arrest upon landing there in the future though

From today's announcement that travelling from a "green" country won't require isolation in Israel -- the Israeli government's website seems to suggest that foreign nationals ARE allowed in provided they have a letter from their local consulate.  With that letter coupled with arriving from a green country -- you would not need to self isolate. 

https://www.gov.il/en/Departments/Guides/flying-to-israel-guidlines

Does anyone know how to get such a letter from a local consulate?  What are the requirements??
