With all due respect [H.],
Please check your sources before forwarding emails. The photo credits are not accurate and neither are the captions that accompany them. A quick web search turned up the following:

According to http://www.gettyimages.com,
Photo#6 does NOT depict IDF soldiers taking care of a Palestinian “that was just shooting towards them.” Here is the actual caption:
“Israeli Soldiers Rescue Palestinians Weapons Smugglers From Collapsed Tunnel
RAFAH, GAZA STRIP – NOVEMBER 18: In this photo made available by the IDF, a Palestinian man receives first aid from Israeli army medics after they were rescued by Israeli soldiers from a collapsed weapons smuggling tunnel they were digging November 18, 2004 in the Palestinian town of Rafah in the Gaza Strip. The three, all from the same family, were trapped in the rubble after the tunnel collapsed as a result of heavy rain in the area overnight, and were arrested by the Israeli army after their rescue.

Photo#8 does NOT depict “IDF soldiers saving Palestinians through a tunnel opening that they have recently blown up” ,the actual caption reads:
Israeli Soldiers Rescue Palestinians Weapons Smugglers From Collapsed Tunnel
RAFAH, GAZA STRIP – NOVEMBER 18: In this photo made available by the IDF, Israeli soldiers rescue 3 Palestinians from a collapsed weapons smuggling tunnel they were digging November 18, 2004 in the Palestinian town of Rafah in the Gaza Strip. The three, all from the same family, were trapped in the rubble after the tunnel collapsed as a result of heavy rain in the area overnight, and were arrested by the Israeli army after their rescue.
