Family members of kidnapped reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev expressed hope on Wednesday that Hizbullah chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah would hold true to his word that talks on their release were indeed progressing. "I hope that Nasrallah actually goes through with what he promised," Karnit Goldwasser, the wife of Ehud Goldwasser, told Channel 2. On Tuesday Nasrallah asserted on Hizbullah's Al-Manar television station that there "are strenuous negotiations." Despite the fact that Goldwasser was hopeful that he was speaking the truth, she said that "the state of Israel has no idea… no information on Udi and Eldad," and therefore, neither do the families. Eyal Regev, the brother of Eldad Regev, told the news channel that Israel "needs to listen to Nasrallah. He said that there is progress… this statement is very important. We must do all that we can to promote this deal," urged Regev.
