The malfunctioning limo was brought in especially for the visit from Washington and is the first unforeseen incident during the president’s three day visit to the region.
It failed to start Wednesday morning, where it was parked at Ben-Gurion airport in Tel-Aviv, amid reports it was mistakenly filled with diesel instead of petrol.
Another Limo is being hurriedly brought in from Jordon, according to the Iranian Maan news agency, citing Israel’s channel 10.

Obama has already apologized about the size of the Presidential entourage.
The Presidential limo is an armored Chevrolet, known as the ‘beast’ and is sealed against biological or chemical attack.
