The Prime Minister said alternative sea routes could be used to bring in vital supplies.
Although 200 aid trucks are crossing into the bomb ravaged territory every day, health organisations have warned more is needed.
Mr Sunak met with the leaders of Israel, Egypt, Qatar and Jordan to discuss the crisis during the COP28 climate summit in Dubai on Friday.
He said the breakdown of the truce in Gaza is “deeply disappointing” and called for all women and child hostages to be released.
Speaking at a press conference the Prime Minister said: “The breakdown of the truce today is deeply disappointing, not least because a growing number of hostages were coming home.”
“I pay tribute to the role of Qatar in helping facilitate these efforts and I hope that the process can be resumed.”
“We want all hostages released and in this initial phase, all women and children should be freed.”
“I’ve said before that the number of civilian casualties and the scale of suffering has been far too high, so the return of hostilities is concerning to us all.”
Mr Sunak called for Israel to take “maximum care” to avoid civilian casualties and said he was opposed to “mass displacement of people”, adding that the UK was exploring options for getting aid to the region by sea.”
The PM said he discussed the Middle East “very briefly” with former prime minister Sir Tony Blair at the summit.
