Non-Iraqi citizens seems to be the answer to that question. These Saudi citizens have most likely individually declared jihad on our military. No doubt they are totally devoted to their task and they must be viewed as military targets.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Aug. 19 (UPI) — Increasing numbers of Saudi Muslims are crossing into Iraq in preparation for a holy war, a report said Tuesday. A senior western counter-terrorism official said the presence of foreign fighters in Iraq was “extremely worrying,” the Financial Times reported.
According to Saad al-Faguih, a British-based Saudi dissident, the Saudi authorities are concerned that up to 3,000 Saudi men have gone “missing” in the kingdom in two months, although it is not clear how many have crossed into Iraq.
