Hezbollah could release two Israeli soldiers it is holding hostage by next month, an Egyptian newspaper reported. Citing officials in Cairo, Al-Ahram reported Sunday that Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, two reservists seized in a July 12 border raid that sparked a full-scale war between Israel and Hezbollah, could go free within two or three weeks as part of a German-mediated deal.
