The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Monday government forces had seized the eastern Aleppo neighbourhood of Sheikh Saeed from rebel fighters in overnight fighting, meaning the opposition has now lost 90 percent of the area they once held in the city.

It said government warplanes had been mounting heavy air strikes overnight on remaining rebel-held areas of eastern Aleppo.

At least 413 civilians have been killed in east Aleppo since the offensive began on November 15, the Observatory said, and 139 killed in rebel rocket fire on the city's west.
