Hooray! Not 'Militants'; 'Fighters'

We're making progress.

The BBC has a slight alteration in semantics. Progress. Well, almost. Headline has "fighters" and story has "militants" and "members".

Israel troops kill Hamas fighters

Militants ended a truce and launched rockets on Tuesday

Israeli troops have shot dead at least three members of Hamas' armed wing in a clash on the Gaza-Israel border, Hamas and the Israeli army have said. The incident took place at about 0830 (0530 GMT), north-west of Gaza City.

The Israeli military said four Hamas members were caught trying to plant a bomb on the security barrier between Gaza and Israel and were fired on.
