It looks like a type of purslane. Pictures of the stem and flower would be helpful

EDIT:
After re-looking at the leaves, maybe not purslane, since they don't look too fleshy, but here's a website on purslane ID. http://www.ediblewildfood.com/purslane.aspx


Another edit....I think I just saw the woody stem...purslane doesn't have woody stem....

The leaves look like some type of rhododendron or azelea, both have woody stems.

Yes it could be a species of adenium or possibly jatropha. Both are highly toxic so take care when dealing with the sap. I think the first 3 suggestions are highly unlikely.
