JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says it has recovered the final three bodies buried beneath the rubble of a construction site collapse in Tel Aviv, setting the final death toll from the incident at six.

Rescue teams led by the military's Home Front Command have been searching for five days for survivors inside the wreckage of the multilevel parking garage that collapsed.

The military confirmed Saturday that all missing bodies had now been accounted for from a collapse that left a large crater in the ground. More than 20 people were wounded in the accident, which is under investigation.

The Home Front Command is often sent around the world to help locate victims from earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural disasters.

The garage collapsed in an upscale commercial district of northern Tel Aviv.
