A secret army of 200 neo-Nazi soldiers planned to murder immigrants and political figures in Germany, it was revealed.
The operation, dubbed Day X, paralyzing, was intended to wreak havoc in the country by conducting a series of brutal killings.
As part of the plot, Green Party leader Claudia Roth, Foreign Minister Heiko Mass and former President Joachim Gauck were reportedly executed.
The plot was revealed in a seven-page report from the Berlin weekly, Focus.
Death squads had planned to lure them and other leftists into remote places to kill them the very day that law and order would collapse – something they claim to be "imminent".
The 200 soldiers were also to target leaders of asylum groups accused of rape, terror and social unrest.
The group would be a neo-Nazi faction in the KSK of the Bundeswehr – the equivalent of the SAS.
The number of its members increased when Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed one million refugees in the country in 2015.
But the authorities broke the splinter group before the death squad could execute its plans.
Originally, they thought it was an alcohol-fueled fantasy, but a former Air Force commander was interrogated to reveal the truth.
The conspirators all belonged to a group called Uniter, founded in 1996 to care for soldiers who had toured Afghanistan and Africa.
Uniter denied any knowledge of the group.
