Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said a victory for his army in Aleppo would be a "huge step" towards ending the country's five-year civil war.

But he added that the defeat of rebel groups in the northern city would not end the conflict.

The rebels called for a five-day truce to allow the evacuation of civilians, after withdrawing from their last strongholds in Aleppo's Old City.

But Assad ruled out any ceasefires, as his army continues its offensive.

This is despite new calls for an immediate truce from the US and five Western powers.
