One of Israel's greatest wartime secrets is due to be revealed on Monday - a so-called last gasp nuclear "doomsday operation" to avoid defeat in the imminent 1967 Six Day War. However, some are treating the reported revelation with skepticism.

The contingency plan, nicknamed "Samson" (or "Shimshon" in Hebrew), would have allegedly involved the detonation of a nuclear device in a desolate part of the Sinai Peninsula in an incredible demonstration of Israel's military might. The operation was to be potentially used as a last-resort scenario to ensure Israel's existence in the case of a looming defeat.
