Progress in Isarel-Syria talks?

Egypt is leaking word of a ceasefire to begin Thursday between Gaza and Israel, and there have been some subtle shifts in announced American policy regarding Shebaa Farms suggesting that the Turkish sponsored Israeli-Syrian talks are more serious than some suspected. 

There is also talk of a prisoner exchange between Israel and Hezbollah and Israel and Hamas. Sadly, in the case of the two prisoners held by Hezbollah, few believe they are still alive.
