Israel's alleged 1967 nuclear 'doomsday operation' plan to be revealed

Whether credible or not, the plans never came into effect as Israel emerged victorious from the conflict.
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.
