The IDF's rescue teams continued to help comb the rubble for survivors with the help of sniffer dogs who were busy at work trying to locate survivors following the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday.

The rescue teams are operating under the command of the Nepalese military, which is directing them to various sites.
