BEIRUT (Reuters) - The battle for Aleppo has reached its end, the director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdulrahman, said on Monday after sweeping army advances into the rebel sector.

Rebels had now withdrawn from six neighbourhoods in the city, their last holdouts in Aleppo, he added.
