I have 4 sisters and 2 brother I have = لدي 4 sisters = أربع أخوات / 4 أخوات 2 brother =أخَوَيْن لدي أربع أخوات وأخوين

the word siblings would translate as -brothers-, the number of brothers / sisters / siblings does not conjugate in spoken arabic, therefore it would be عندي أربع خوات عندي أربع إخوة the latter could mean 4 brothers as well as 4 siblings

Sibling or siblings who are from same father and mother, they called: My female sibling : شقيقتي My male sibling: شقيقي My siblings: أشقائي I have 6 siblings: أنا لدي ستة أشقاء But using brothers "أخوة" works on siblings or not siblings, but if they were siblings, it's better to use "أشقاء", and brothers can be be better for who are from one side of parnets, only by mother side or father side
