I don't know I this understanding has been shaped by current culture or if it has dictionary blessing but for me the difference between 'militant' and 'terrorist' is that while both may be engaged in acts of death/destruction the militant directs his actions towards other 'militants' and at least nominally attempts to restrict collateral damage; while for the terrorist the objective IS collateral damage.
