French soldiers from the 92nd Regiment Infantery take part in a military operation on April 8, 2013 some 105 kilometers North of Gao. A French force of 1,000 soldiers in a major offensive has swept a valley thought to be a logistics base for Al-Qaeda-linked Islamists near the Malian city of Gao. Operation Gustav, one of France's largest actions since its intervention against insurgents in January, will involve dozens of tanks, helicopters, drones and airplanes, said General Bernard Barrera, commander of the French land forces in Mali. France is to start withdrawing its 4,000 troops from Mali at the end of April, and plans to leave a 'support force' of 1,000 soldiers after elections promised for July.
