She will say United Nations inspectors found Syrian president Bashar al-Assad's government responsible for four previous chemical weapons attacks and that she is confident it was "highly likely" to have been behind last week's attack in Douma, which killed up to 75 people.
Defense Secretary James Mattis, new national security adviser John Bolton, Vice President Mike Pence and US ambassador to the United NationsNikki Haley were all involved in the decision to strike Syria, Reutersreports.
The US Ambassador to United Nations also used the occasion to defend the usage of the words "mission accomplished", by the US President Donald Trump after he ordered the military on Friday to launch airstrikes on three sites in Syria.
"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley stressed. Defence secretary Gavin Wiliamson told BBC Radio 4: "Our service personnel have played an important role in terms of degrading the ability of the Syrian regime to use chemical weapons in the future, but also it sends a clear message to the Syrian regime that they can not continue to use chemical weapons with impunity".
Russian Federation and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma.
Pence said the strike was morally correct, because it was meant to prevent similar chemical attacks in the future.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the missile strike against Syria's military and civilian infrastructures was carried out by USA warplanes and naval ships in cooperation with the British and French air forces between 03:42 and 05:10 Moscowtime on Saturday.
Russian Federation had also proposed a draft resolution condemning the US-initiated strikes of Syria which was only supported by China and Bolivia.
McKenzie said 76 missiles were used in that strike.
Ireland will not condemn the air strikes and Irish sources said there was no division within the European Union about the need to deter chemical attacks and that the Assad regime was involved in wholesale slaughter of its own people.
He added that the Him Shinshar chemical-weapons bunker facility near Homs was targeted with seven missiles and was "successfully hit".
Mattis said Friday that the United States had not yet confirmed that the suspected Syrian chemical weapons attack included the use of sarin gas.
According to USA officials, the operation comprised three United States destroyers, a French frigate and a U.S. submarine.
"We need real long-term commitment to bring peace to Syria", he said.
A group of Russian politicians has met with Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose mood they describe as good a day after Western airstrikes.
"Last night, the United States along with our British and French allies showed the world that the United States will not sit idly by while the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons to murder and maim its own people. It is not about regime change".
The Syrian government has repeatedly denied any use of banned weapons.
