Short answer, a web application can be provisioned as a software service (SaaS).

I suggest reading the series of Wisdom of the Clouds to get a in-depth and time-wise developments through time on the evolution of IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS.

For me Saas (Software as a Service) is when you provide your application without any infrastructure requirement from the client, so the client could use your software without take care about the systems that support your software. A web app is a Saas application if the application runs in the provider infrastructure.
