Israel: More prisoner release rumors

According to this item, negotiations for release of Israeli prisoners held by Hezbollah and Hamas are still progressing. But Hezbollah will not provide any information that shows Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser are still alive. Very likely they are dead unfortunately:
Al-Ittihad said that the talks on the swap for the two soldiers are at the stage of "determining names."
It is impossible to determine the veracity of the report, which came from the paper's reporter in Beirut and credits political sources.
According to the report, Iranian-backed Hezbollah has requested the release by Israel of Lebanese, Syrian, Jordanian and Palestinian prisoners, in return for IDF reservists Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, who were snatched during a patrol along the border with Lebanon in July 2006.
The paper says that one of the central points of dispute between the sides is the condition of the two IDF soldiers held by Hezbollah.
Israel is demanding that Hezbollah provide signs of life from its two soldiers before the negotiations can continue.
Hezbollah has said, however, that Israel must free Arab prisoners for this information, among them Samir Kuntar, the Lebanese terrorist jailed for the 1979 murders of a Nahariya man and his four-year-old daughter.
We remember the last swap in which huge numbers of prisoners were free, and then Hezbollah returned bodies of soldiers rather than living ones. Having been rewarded for that behavior, they probably repeated it.
