On 8th of November 2013, Abu Mohamad al-Fateh , Chef of Kataib Shabab al-Huda, announced on his twitter account (@AboMHDAlFateh) an agreement between twenty two armed rebellion groups, in east Ghota outskirts of Damascus, to assign one Sharia'a judge "Sheikh Abd al-Aziz al-Uyon" for judicial affairs. The agreement mentioned also forming a judicial body to solve judicial issues between civilians and also militants according to Islamic rules.

The signatory factions:
1-   Council of Mujadeen of Duma

Few remarks regarding the signatory factions are:
1- Some important factions were missing in the agreement, such as Jaish al-Islam, Ahrar al-Sham & Jabhet al-Nusra.
2- The agreement included few but influential local factions such as (Kata'aib  Shabab al-Huda, Katibait Issa bin Mariam, Brigades of al-Habib al-Mustafa), which could give the agreement some value.
3- For the first time for such an agreement, it included the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). For the record, this could be a turning in ISIS policy as they previously refused to work with common Sharia'a bodies.
