Camp Domiz in northern Iraq is home to about 30,000 Syrian Kurds and their numbers are expanding.

Their hosts are also ethnic Kurds who have given them residency permits.

The refugees are allowed to move freely and work in the region, and many say they will not return to Syria if President Bashar al-Assad remains in power.

Al Jazeera's Omar Al Saleh reports from Camp Domiz.
