All of those shells that missed came down "somewhere"!  Looks like the
Phalanx system they put on ships for AA!

Make sure the sound is on! Close-in air defense system by Raytheon  
Israeli Phalanx Close-in air defense system (by Raytheon) engaging incoming
I am guessing that this is part of Israel's "Iron Dome" defense system.
There appear to be at least two high speed guns out of
view of the camera, maybe more.  At least 50cal. or maybe 20mm for the range
they are shooting.  The white can in the foreground 
appears to be for close-in fire, in the event the longer range guns do not
do the job.  All this is radar/computer controlled, no human
action except to turn it on.  What we are seeing are real shoot-downs,
rockets launched probably from Lebanon aimed at Tel Aviv or
other populated targets.  This is cutting-edge American technology.
