The Prime Minister will tell MPs on Monday that the strikes were in the national interest because the use of chemical weapons can not be normalised, including in the UK.
"Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace", he said. This legally questionable action risks escalating further, as United States defence secretary James Mattis has admitted, an already devastating conflict and therefore makes real accountability for war crimes and use of chemical weapons less, not more likely.
Four Tornado jets from the Akrotiri base in Cyprus fired eight missiles at a military facility near Homs where it was assessed that Syria had stockpiled chemicals, the Ministry of Defence said.
It said the Syrian regime has been using chemical weapons since 2013, killing almost 1,000 civilians and injuring hundreds more which constitutes a war crime and a crime against humanity.
"While much suspicion rightly points to the Assad government chemical weapons have been used by other groups in the conflict".
The UK joined forces with the U.S. and France to bombard three suspected chemical weapons production facilities on Saturday.
French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe also justified the military action in a speech Monday to the National Assembly, France's lower house of parliament.
When asked what would happen in the event of further chemical attacks, May said she would be willing to order further airstrikes against Syria, refusing to commit to consulting parliament beforehand.

Mr Trump declared it was "mission accomplished" and thanked the United Kingdom and France "for their wisdom and the power of their fine military".
A Kremlin statement said Mr Putin and his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, agreed during a telephone conversation that the air strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution of the conflict in Syria.
Washington, Paris and London have all described the strikes as a success, but Johnson acknowledged he did not know whether Assad could still possess chemical weapons and activity in Syria would be monitored on a daily basis.
Jeremy Corbyn has called for the introduction of a War Powers Act to stop governments launching military action in most circumstances without the backing of the Commons.
The ministers said the European Union "understands" the need for the coordinated U.S, French and British airstrikes following the suspected April 7 chemical attack.
Speaking in Brussels, he told reporters: "Before the strikes took place last night, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies exhausted all other possible ways to address this issue through the UN Security Council by diplomatic and political means".
Corbyn later wrote to May seeking assurance that there would be no further bombing raids and urged the government to negotiate a pause in the Syrian civil war.
This aggression will only lead to inflaming tensions in the world and threatens worldwide security.
And a significant body of information including intelligence indicates the Syrian Regime is responsible for this latest attack.
"There is no proposal on the table at the moment for further attacks because so far, thank heavens, the Assad regime have not been so foolish as to launch another chemical weapons attack", he told the Andrew Marr show.
