Abu Dhabi: A fight between two Saudi brothers in Mecca ended in a deliberate car crash and stabbing, police said.
Officers were called to a fight between the siblings after bystanders and traffic police intervened, police added.
“A brother hunted down the other on Mecca road, intentionally crashed into his car and stabbed him in the chest with a knife,” police said.
The brothers were rushed to Hira General Hospital via an ambulance, to receive medical care, police said.
Al Tanaim Police in Mecca investigated the case after their health conditions stabilised and referred them to the Public Prosecution, pendign further legal action, police said.
A member of the Saudi Human Rights Association and Vice Dean of the College of Sharia at Umm Al Qura University, Dr. Mohammad Al Sahli, said family disputes occur, but here comes the voice of wisdom and the role of the head of the family, to contain such disputes and limit their consequences.
“In the event the family head is unable to solve a dispute, the matter should be referred to judicial and legal bodies that can intervene and give everyone his right without entering into such deadly fights, since the state of anger was overwhelming, and one of them may have psychological or health conditions,” Dr. Al Sahli advised.
He confirmed such situation must be dealt with all reason and wisdom, to avoid conflicts, after which everyone will regret as they calm down and return to the path of righteousness.
