Open the oil filler cap, and shine a little torch inside so you can see a rocker.
If you can't see a rocker you may need to lift the rocker cover off.
Get someone to operate the starter.
If the rockers rock, the cam belt is NOT broken.

If the rockers do NOT rock as the engine turns - suspect a broken cam belt.

Fuel will not reach the injectors simply by priming the lift pump.
