Israel's foreign reserves decreased by $204 million in Aug.

Israel's foreign exchange reserves decreased from $204 million dollars from $64.313 billion to $64.109 billion between July 2010 and the end of August 2010, the Bank of Israel announced on Tuesday.
The drop in foreign reserves was attributed to a downward revaluation of reserves by $454 million and government transfers abroad of $336 million which more than offset the Bank's large purchase of dollars, totaling $596 million.
