Day X plot
|Date||2015 - February 2017|
|Perpetrators||'Franco A.'?, 'Mathias F.'?, 'Maximilian T.'?|
|Description||A failed attack which appears to have been intended as a false flag to be blamed on Syria.|
The Day X plot was publicised in April 2017. The central figure is 'Franco A.', alleged to have conspired with 'Maximilian T.' and 'Mathias F.' They were arrested on weapons charges and discovered to have created a fake Syrian ID, as if they were planning an attack to be later blamed on refugees. German privacy laws prevent disclosure of their full names. The commercially-controlled media has shown less interest than the 2016 Saumur Daesh Cell and is not known to have mentioned Operation Gladio or Operation Gladio/B. In November 2017 the case was dropped "due to insufficient evidence", a decision which Dietmar Henning termed "outrageous".
February 2017 Detention
In February 2017, 'Franco A.', a 28 year old lieutenant of the German Bundeswehr was "temporarily detained" by Austrian police at Vienna airport, after he tried to retrieve a loaded, unregistered, handgun he had hidden in a toilet there days earlier which authorities claimed was to be used in an "act of state-threatening violence".
Der Spiegel reported that 'Franco A.' wrote a Master's thesis on subversion in 2014 at a French elite university[Which?] and that the supervising professor had concluded the text did not conform with the fundamentals of liberal democracy.
Syrian Fake Identity
A fingerprint check discovered that in December 2015 he had successfully created a false identity for himself as 'David Benjamin' a fruit seller from Damascus. Franco A. had gained partial asylum status as a war refugee. Since he reportedly speaks no Arabic, "riddles remain as to how the soldier received refugee status using a Syrian alias." This suggests that he may have received support from a wider group, such as Operation Gladio/B.
Two men stationed in Illkirch, Alsace were arrested as suspected accomplices. On April 26, 2017, police arrested an alleged accomplice, a 24-year-old German student named as 'Mathias F.', in possession of bullets, flares and other objects that breach weapons laws. On May 9, 2017, Der Spiegel reported that federal prosecutors had arrested 'Maximilian T.', the second German soldier accused of plotting to commit the false flag terrorist attack.
Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said Saturday that a probe had been set up at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) in Nuremberg to deliver "very quick results" into how the suspect established a second identity, allegedly for plans to attack foreigners. The German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen, reports that the Bundeswehr has been reluctant to give more information about him.

Dietmar Henning claimed in December 2017 that "The release of Franco A. confirms the warnings of the World Socialist Web Site that neo-Nazi networks in the Bundeswehr, police and intelligence services are being shielded by the state. 
It has been known since May that the neo-Nazi terror cell in the Bundeswehr involved far more than the three soldiers who have now been released. The murders carried out by the National Socialist terror gang took place under the noses—and possibly with the direct assistance—of the German intelligence services. Files that could prove this were shredded immediately after the NSU trio were uncovered. Several witnesses connected in one way or another to the gang have died under mysterious circumstances. In the NSU trial currently taking place in Munich the federal prosecutor’s office and the court have systematically blocked any investigation of the activities of intelligence service undercover agents."
'Maximilian T.' and 'Mathias F.' were released in July 2017, after the Karlsruhe-based Federal Court of Justice (BGH) ruled there were no longer grounds to hold them. On 29 November 2017, the BGH released 'Franco. A', stating that "The results so far of the investigation do not substantiate the strong suspicion that a serious act threatening the state was in preparation".
