The Israeli military has created an intricate set of three-dimensional mapping diagrams of the collapsed Florida condo building and the surrounding disaster site as part of its efforts to assist local authorities in finding victims in the rubble. The Israel Defense Forces provided The Post with various images of the remaining portion of the gutted Champlain Towers South in Surfside, where the death toll stood at 16 as of Wednesday afternoon. There are still 147 people unaccounted for, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said at a press briefing. Capt. Uri Jospe, a reserves civilian population officer, told The Post in a phone interview from Florida that the images were created by the Israeli military’s secretive Unit 9900, which is tasked with gathering visual intelligence, including geographical data from satellites and planes. “Based on what the rescuers are finding, including artifacts, and what we gather from the families, the unit created the 3-D modeling that is very accurate,” said Jospe, 36, adding that the high-tech unit also composed images of the building before the collapse to compare the landmarks to the pancaked remains.
