Hezbollah captured Israeli soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev in a July 2006 border ambush.
A U.N.-appointed German mediator has been handling the swap deal under which Israel would recover the soldiers in exchange for releasing five Lebanese prisoners and the remains of eight Hezbollah fighters and 200 slain Arabs.
Under the deal expected to take place this month, Israel would also release an undisclosed number of Palestinian prisoners.
The Lebanese prisoners include Samir Qantar.
