Hello.
Please help me with the article in the sentence: "Protesters are accusing (?)the military forces of human rights abuses."
Will the situation change if an adjectice is used, for example: "Protesters are accusing (?)the Yemeni military forces of human rights abuses." Maybe no article at all in both cases?
Thank you.

  1. You can either use "the" in both sentences or not. It doesn't make any difference.

    Your second sentence, of course, is much more specific since it refers to a particular country's military forces. With or without "the," the meaning is still clear.
