"Militants" is the term the international media employs to avoid labelling terrorists as terroroists.
As in the Washington Post, using AP, this past week:
Hamas militant group
But, according to this news item at the Ma''an news agency,
Four Hamas members were injured on Friday morning by an accidental explosion at one of the group''s military training sites west of the city of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip. Spokesperson for the Gaza Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma''an that the four individuals were taken to hospitals in the southern Gaza Strip for treatment.
You did catch that?
the group''s military training sites
So, they, at the least, militarists, yes.
Next, they''ll be calling them terrorists.
Such a militant media.
Such a semantic war.
