In response to a wave of haredi attacks on little children and women in Beit Shemesh, Israeli Police are flooding the town with hundreds of reinforcements, the Jerusalem Post reported today.
"According to the law, verbal abuse and spitting are considered assaults," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told the Post. "We've stepped up our presence around Bet Shemesh and will continue to work against illegal conduct."
Police say they now intend to immediately arrest anyone spitting on or verbally assaulting another person.
They also intend to make sure that haredi signs calling for public gender segregation that were which were illegally posted on public property are not re-posted. After the illegal signs were reported in the media, the City of Beit Shemesh removed them, sparking two nights of haredi riots.
