At the start of first gulf war in August 1990 Iraq had 36 Mobile Scud missile launchers.
Throughout the war USA used all available assets to try locate and destroy Iraqi missiles. That included 24 hour surveillance by Air Force , satellites and ground troops.

Throughout the 5 month war, the Iraqi Scud launchers were located only 42 times, and only 8 times actually attacked. Iraq continued launching scuds throughout the war.
At the end of the war when UN inspectors went to Iraq, they found 19 Scud Missile launchers and 62 Missiles intact and in usable shape.
That was after 2000 air force flights solely to search and destroy Scud launchers, 300 Tomahawk Cruise missile attacks and 88500 Tons on bombs dropped on Iraq during war and no account if Artillery shells and Rockets used.
Then there is India who say they can “Easily” search and destroy Pakistani missile launchers.
