That's very interesting !
It looks that more than 130k new articles have been created by the same user: HitomiAkane
and apparently it's not a bot.
I'm wondering what is the trigger behind this ?

NB: looking at it: they might even work manually, not purely by bot?

Arz.wiki used to hover under 20,000 articles for years, was at 24,000 until November 2019
and then started adding, reaching 158,107 today 5 March 2020 (adding 10,000 articles in
the 5 days of March!). Looks like some programme doing articles. I wonder: is there
anything readable coming out of it? Is it actually masri or do they just copy regular
existing material from ar.wikipedia? Appreciate our Arabic speakers' wisdom! Cheers,
