Syrian refugees are hoping 2013 will bring about an end to the violence and bloodshed in their country so they can return home.

Yayladagi camp, on the Turkish border, was built to accommodate the first wave of Syrians who left their villages in Idlib and Latakia.

Two years on, they remain confident there may be an end to the conflict soon.

Al Jazeera’s Hashem Ahelbarra reports from the camp.
