A naturalised Israeli citizen convicted of spying for Hezbollah in 2002, Nassim Nisr, has been deported back to Lebanon after spending six years in jail.

Surprisingly on the Lebanese side, Hezbollah has returned the remains of Israeli soldiers killed during the 2006 war.

The exchange took place amid rumors that the release might be part of a larger scale prisoner swap between the two sides.

Inside Story asks if the release is part of a bigger deal that could bring two captured Israeli soldiers back home and, if so, what price Israel would have to pay in return.
