The Israel Police is set to launch a crackdown on Haredi extremists in Beit Shemesh, which will include on-the-spot arrests for verbal abuse.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Tuesday hundreds of officers are being deployed to the town to reinforce the Beit Shemesh police station.

"According to the law, verbal abuse and spitting are considered assaults," Rosenfeld told The Jerusalem Post. "We've stepped up our presence around Bet Shemesh and will continue to work against illegal conduct."

Police will also return to sites of removed street signs that called for the segregation of women on sidewalks, and ensure that the old signs are not replaced, Rosenfeld added.
