According to DAWN News channel:

The suspension disrupted PIA flight operations at various stations including Karachi.

Image
Domestic and international flights delayed.

Passengers facing inconvenience due to delayed flights.

Jet fuel supply has been restored after suspension, according to PIA spokesperson.

Flight operations returning to normalcy now, according to PIA spokesperson.

It's not clear whether jet fuel supply suspension was due to some technical reasons OR due to dispute between PIA and Pakistan State Oil (PSO) over late payments by the airline.
