- Fidā'ī: the word fidāʼīyīn is the Arabic plural of fidāʼī, which means "sacrifice"/"one who sacrifice himself" (A literal translation of fidāʼīyīn might be "martyrs") and it originally comes from Persia - where the first band of fedayeen (also famous as "Hashshashin") was formed by Hassan-i Sabbah. The Palestinian fedayeen (from the Arabic fidā'ī, plural fidā'iyūn, فدائيون) are militants or guerrillas of a nationalist orientation from among the Palestinian people. Most Palestinians consider the fedayeen to be "freedom fighters".
