Ilan Grapel will be returned to Israel at 9:00 am on Thursday, Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram reported Wednesday morning.

Grapel, a dual American-Israeli citizen held in Egypt on spying charges since June, will be transferred across the Taba border Thursday morning in exchange for 25 Egyptians sitting in Israeli prisons, according to the report.

This most recent prisoner exchange comes just nine days after Israel and Hamas carried out an historic prisoner swap to release captive Israeli tank gunner Gilad Schalit.
