Many activists who campaigned for a democratic state in Syria are being forced to flee the country.

They have long been targets of the Syrian regime, but now they are being threatened by al-Qaeda-linked groups who want to impose their version of an Islamic state.

Khoula Alrafe and Alwan Zuaiter are two Syrian activists who had to leave their lives in the northeastern province of Raqqah after being threatened by foreign fighters who rule over it.

Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports from Turkey on their story.
