8 year old : Sibling conflict


My 8 yo girl and 5 yo boy fight often. I intervened at the beginning but saw that it was a BIG mistake to get involved in that way. Now, when I hear arguments, or when they come to me about name calling, hitting, etc., I separate them as I've seen suggested by you. My question is, what would be the best way to handle the situation if I actually see one child intentionally hurt the other child without being provoked. It doesn't happen often, but I'm not sure what the best route to take would be. I want to be careful to stop rivalry. Thanks
