Defense Minister Amir Peretz announced on Friday morning that the IDF hoped withdraw all its remaining soldiers from southern Lebanon within the next two weeks. Peretz said the withdrawal would depend on coordination with the UN multinational force that would deploy in the army's stead. Peretz met Friday morning with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, where he emphasized that Germany had "an important potential role [to play] in returning kidnapped soldiers Eldad Regev and [Ehud] Goldwasser home."
