Preparations

Lebanese prisoner Samir Qantar (3rd R) and four other prisoners wait before their release from Hadarim prison, near the coastal city of Netanya, July 16, 2008. Israel and Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrilla group were set to swap prisoners on Wednesday two years after the two sides fought a month-long war. Under a deal mediated by a German intelligence officer, Israel was to free five prisoners in exchange for two soldiers captured by Hezbollah guerrillas in a 2006 cross-border raid, who are widely presumed dead, government officials said.
