Amnesty International states that new satellite images show an increased use of heavy weapons in and around Syria's city of Aleppo, raising urgent concerns over the welfare of residents.

The rights group says the photos reveal more than 600 craters, which were probably caused by artillery shells.

Both government troops and rebels may be held criminally responsible for failing to protect civilians.

Meanwhile, Iran has reiterated support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
