A new strategy appeared to be crystalizing to let the USA leave Syria without relinquishing its interests to Assad government or his allies, Iran and Russian Federation.
It was the first time MPs had the chance to question Mrs May over her decision to join the USA and France in attacking Syria due to the Easter break.
Haley said during an appearance on "Face the Nation" on Sunday that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would be announcing new sanctions directed at companies associated with Syria's chemical weapons program.
The suspected attack in Douma, outside Damascus, in which the World Health Organization has said 43 people who died suffered "symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals", occurred on April 7.
On Monday, the AP visited a two-room underground shelter where Khaled Mahmoud Nuseir said 47 people were killed, including his pregnant wife and two daughters, 18-month-old Qamar and 2 1/2-year-old Nour.
Civilians lived in Douma for months under bombardment from Russian and Syrian airstrikes.

At least 70 people were killed, but Syria denies the attack.
The fact-finding mission from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is investigating reports that government forces launched an April 7 chemical attack in the final stages of their fight to retake the town of Douma from rebels. According to Syrian state media, the country's air defenses had responded to a missile attack over the western city of Homs.
Her remarks came as she briefed lawmakers at the House of Commons about the weekend airstrikes held with the US and France, which targeted the Assad regime's chemical weapons facilities.
Both Syria, which denies any chemical use, and Russian Federation, which provides military support to the Syrian government, have reacted against the action. It also reported a separate air strike on the Dumayr air base near Damascus.
"On Wednesday is when we plan the arrival of the OPCW experts", he added at a press conference in the Russian embassy in The Hague. Israel did not confirm or deny mounting the raid.
However, Damascus says it has already discarded all of its chemical munitions.
The Kremlin also denied that Russian Federation was not allowing the OPCW mission in.
Medical charities operating in opposition-held parts of Syria have dismissed those statements as propaganda, given under duress now that government forces control the town.
The Russian military later said that it will help secure the visit of worldwide chemical weapons inspectors to the site of the alleged attack.
