    Background: The France Army continues its all-out drive against the Algerian rebels with An attack in the Hodne Mountains, algeria.

    The aim of the operation is to destroy rebel communications, transit camps and installations which enable the rebels to switch men and supplies to the Kabylian mountains where the main French offensive is taking place.

    These aerial pictures, taken from a helicopter flying in with supplies show the bleak, inhospitable county in which fighting is taking place.

    Under cover of paratroops on a mountain peak, strong contingents of French soldiers in armoured lorries work through the valleys, seeking out and destroying rebel underground depots well stocked with food and clothing, taking many prisoners, stocks of arms and ammunition.

    In the twelve-day operation, 304 rebels have been killed for the loss of 46 French troops.
