Arab League Chief has said on Sunday that what is happening in Syria, "especially in Aleppo, amounts to war crimes," according to the Egyptian state news agency.

The comments come after Syrian President Bashar Assad declared victory on Sunday after a battle for Syria's capital Damascus. Assad's forces have struggled to maintain their grip on the country over the past two weeks after a major rebel advance into the two largest cities and an explosion that killed four top security officials.

Government forces have succeeded in reimposing control of the capital after a punishing battle, but rebels are still in control of sections of Aleppo, clashing with reinforced army troops for several days.
