[This vacancy has arisen after the current ISM media coordinator had to cut short her work in Palestine due to injury. She was shot in the leg with a tear gas canister at a demonstration in An Nabi Saleh 6 weeks ago, and has since needed two operations to drain a hematoma and then to remove tissue that became infected, probably due to the chemicals on the canister. Hopefully the muscle damage will not prove permanent.]
