Are you sure you replaced all needed parts of the timing belt, including tensioners, water pump and pulleys?
Did you position it correctly afterwards (in line with the marks)?
If you did that, please check the following (because i hear it crank but not get the engine going)
Check the voltage of your battery. See how much is still has to offer.
If it's below 12V, it's past life expectancy. You will need to replace it. It cannot be recharged anymore. The starter will however still crank, but cannot give enough power surge to really get the engine going anymore.
It should be reading 12.6V or higher if it's fully charged.
Driving a BMW318i with LPG at the moment. Had a 2.0 RAV4.1 1997 3drs 4WD euro model w/ABS dual sunroof blue two tone previously.
