Al Jazeera: Syrian army 'cuts off last supply route to east Aleppo'

"No way to bring anything into Aleppo", as US says it will formally probe Syrian civilian deaths in coalition strikes.

Rebels just withdrew from Bani Zaid which is probably a good thing as they were about to be cut off. Not sure if they retreated back into the city or ran the gauntlet to escape the greater encirclement.
