Day X plot是指有計劃地通過軍事德國陸軍特種部隊司令部(Special Forces Command) of Germany's 德國聯邦國防軍 in 2017. According to media reports, the objective of the operation was the assassination of 左翼党 (德国) party leader Dietmar Bartsch英语Dietmar Bartsch and other left-leaning politicians。 Information about the plot came to law enforcement attention in 2017 during investigation of a different alleged conspiracy by German military officers to assassinate the President of Germany. It was first publicly reported in November 2018.


在2008年和2017年間,Germany's Military Counter-intelligence Service英语Military Counterintelligence Service (Germany) (MAD) identified roughly 200 right-wing extremists within the Bundeswehr.[1]

In April 2017, German prosecutors charged a 28-year-old German Army soldier and two others with plotting a wave of violent attacks against left-leaning German politicians that would be framed on asylum seekers.[1][2] "Franco A.", a 中尉, had allegedly planned to target 德國聯邦總統 约阿希姆·高克, 海科·馬斯, Claudia Roth英语Claudia Roth, and unnamed "human rights activists and journalists".[1][2] He was purportedly aided by another soldier, named only as "Maxilimilian T." and a university student named as "Mathias F.".[3] According to authorities, a search of "Franco A."s quarters also revealed his possession of 德意志國防軍 memorabilia and, it was also learned, his 硕士 thesis advanced what was described as völkisch英语völkisch arguments and theories.[4]

Dietmar Bartsch英语Dietmar Bartsch, 约阿希姆·高克, 海科·馬斯, and Claudia Roth英语Claudia Roth, were among those named as potential assassination targets on Day X and during the earlier, alleged "Franco A." conspiracy.

這年11月,德国联邦最高法院勒令釋放"Franco A.",ruling that "the results so far of the investigation do not substantiate the strong suspicion that a serious act threatening the state was in preparation".[5]

Alleged plot编辑

In September 2017, prior to "Franco A."'s release, Federal Criminal Police英语Federal Criminal Police Office (Germany) officers searched the barracks of the German Army's elite Special Forces Command (KSK) in 卡尔夫.[4] The search occurred after information obtained in the investigation of "Franco A." indicated that "Franco A." might have had contact with KSK commandos.[4] Police were unable to find evidence of subversive activity during the search but suspected the KSK soldiers had been tipped off before their arrival.[4]

On 9 November 2018, 焦点 (杂志) first publicly reported on the investigation.[4] According to it, the inquiry had uncovered a potential conspiracy within the KSK designed to murder Dietmar Bartsch and other unnamed politicians on an operational date designated Day X.[6][7] Day X was intended to coincide with the collapse of the German Government, an event the alleged conspirators felt was imminent and inevitable due to communal tension related to the country's growing refugee population.[6][8]

In addition to the Federal Criminal Police, Deutschlandfunk英语Deutschlandfunk has reported that the German domestic security agency, the 联邦宪法保卫局, is also investigating the matter.[4]


According to authorities, the earlier alleged tip-off to potential KSK conspirators had been made by a 中校 in MAD who alerted the soldiers about the raid on their barracks in advance of it occurring.[6] Police apparently learned of this due to an informant, "André S.", placed within the KSK.[4] The MAD 雙重間諜, named in charging documents as "Peter W.", was subsequently indicted in a 科隆 Amtsgericht英语Amtsgericht on unspecified charges related to his alleged interference.[9]
