A total of 25 Iraqis, who were injured in a series of bombings in Baghdad last month, arrived in the Jordanian capital of Amman Tuesday to receive required medical treatment, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

The Iraqi nationals will be treated at the military-run Queen Alia Hospital in Amman, according to Royal Medical Services (RMS) Director Major General Abdul Latif Wreikat.

"Medical staff at the hospital will provide all necessary treatment to the injured Iraqis upon directives by King Abdullah," Wreikat said.

The 25 Iraqis are among hundreds others who were injured in a series of bombings that ripped through the Iraqi capital of Baghdad in December of last year.

The bombings, which targeted several government buildings including ministries of interior, labor and finance, killed over 120 Iraqis.

Following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, Jordan dispatched a field hospital to Iraqi city of Fallujah for the treatment of Iraqis. According to the RMS, the hospital has offered treatment to over 1.5 million Iraqis to date.
