Mother of murdered Palestinian boy: There is nothing that can make me forget

(CNN) – The flare-up in Middle East tensions has roots in the sickening murders of teenagers on both sides.

Three Israeli teens, abducted in the west bank and killed last month, and a Palestinian teen, also kidnapped a little more than a week ago, and burned alive.

His cousin, an American citizen visiting Jerusalem, says Israeli police wrongly accused him of throwing rocks, and brutally beat him for it.

CNN's Becky Anderson has been speaking to family members of these murdered teens. She spoke with Suha Abu Khedair, the mother of murdered Palestinian boy Mohammed Abu Khedair.

"Everything reminds me of Mohammed. There is nothing that can make me forget him," she said.

"He had a lot of humor in his life," she said, tears streaming down her face.
