Sibling Rivalry or Sibling Abuse?

Question

Hello!

We have two daughters (3.5 years and 14 months). Lately we have seen increased incidents where the youngest bites or hits the oldest or the oldest pushes the youngest away (our oldest is tiny and our youngest is mature for her age). It is difficult to tell who did what and what led up to it. I read in the well behaved child to not get trapped into the role of referee but I find myself doing that. How should I manage this; especially given we have a 14 month old which I cannot really discipline or principles like tickets.

Thank you very much in advance for helping us out.
