BEIRUT, Lebanon — Russian strikes Saturday on a prison complex run by Al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate in the country’s northwest killed at least 39 people, including five civilians, a monitoring group said.

The strikes hit an Al-Nusra Front building, which lies near a popular market in Maarat al-Numan in Idlib province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
