The Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram said Sunday morning that according to high-ranking Egyptian sources, an exchange deal is set to take place between Israel and Hizbullah within the next two or three weeks, Israel Radio reported. The first stage of the agreement would be the release of the two soldiers kidnapped by Hizbullah last month, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, the report said. The next stage, the sources said, would be Israel's release of Palestinian prisoners a day or two after the soldiers are returned. According to the newspaper, the same high-ranking Egyptian sources also said that a similar exchange would soon be agreed upon for Cpl. Gilad Shalit, who was kidnapped in Gaza during a cross-border raid. There is as yet no final draft of the agreement, the newspaper reported.
