British English

The BBC reports:

Militant rockets have killed one Israeli.

Are the rockets actually 'militant'?

Not 'military'?

Perhaps 'terroristic'?

Or did the rockets belong to and were launched by 'militants'?

Not Hamas?

Not a recognized terror organisation? 

Or maybe it was the Hamas who killed the Israeli through the use of rockets (really a mortar)?

Language shouldn't be used by a media outlet to disguise the truth.
