Oops, There Goes Another "Militant"

In a Reuters story, I found this line:

Elsewhere in Gaza, a top Hamas bombmaker died when a device blew up as he was training militants to prepare explosives.

So, for the umpteeth time on this site, I'll ask:

Why use the word "militants" to describe people who are obviously militaristic, violent and even terroristic?
