WASHINGTON - The Pentagon on Monday dismissed as "ridiculous" a report that appeared on the website of Iranian state television saying Israeli military aircraft were massing at a US air base in Iraq for a strike on Iran.

Colonel Dave Lapan said there was no truth to the report.

Earlier, Iraqi air force commander Staff Lieutenant General Anwar Ahmed also rejected the report as "groundless."
