TOPSHOT - Syrian army soldiers rest in a street in the government-controlled part of the besieged town of Daraya on August 26, 2016, as thousands of rebel fighters and civilians prepared to evacuate under an accord struck a day earlier. 
An estimated 8,000 people remain in the town, despite a government siege lasting four years and regular regime bombardment.
