Life was good for Mohammed and Amna Lelayesh, a couple in their mid-40s. He built houses and she minded their four children while studying for a degree in theology.
Then on February 12, 2012, about 50 rockets fell on their neighborhood outside of Damascus. They grabbed the small travel bags they kept prepared and fled immediately.
"I want to go back more than anything," Amna says, with tears in her eyes. "We had everything: a house, property, family, friends. Here we are lonely and isolated."
