Does A Believer Have To Love Someone Who Rips Them?

The NKJ version says

1 John 2:9
He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.

Got me thinking about who a brother is. Is it a countryman, another believer, a family member, any other human being? Here’s from the God’s Word Translation-

1 John 2:9
Those who say that they are in the light but hate other believers are still in the dark.
