The Bank of Israel attributed the rise to an increase of $101 million, deriving mostly from private sector transactions.
The increase was also due to government transfers abroad amounting to $265 million. These were offset by a revaluation that lowered the reserves by $99 million, the Bank said.
Israel's foreign currency reserves reached a record high in August 2011, when they reached $78.01 billion.
