Huh? Syria went from ca. 1e+3 in late June 2013 to over 4e+3, initially
a spike in early July, and then plateauing in early August.

That's hardly a few percent. It's a factor of four. And that's plainly
obvious from the Tor metrics site:

It's just an observation. And for what it's worth, you're the one who
initially posted a derived chart for Syria, which just happened to
average out the changes in July and early August.
