In other words, you want to reload the entire document except one DIV contained within the document? I think it's impossible.
If, however, not the entire document is reloaded, but only a part, which contains that DIV with image links, then you may temporally move the DIV elsewhere (e.g. into a hidden container), then refresh the part of a document, and finally restore the DIV it its initial position.
I however can make no hand of what is the reason you wish to realize such a strange behavior.
