Konstantiniyye was a Turkish language online magazine published online by the Islamic State (ISIL/ISIS/IS), and released by al-Hayat Media Center.[2] Konstantiniyye is the old Ottoman name for present day Istanbul.[2][3]

The magazine published anti-Turkish messages and targeted Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and the current Peoples' Democratic Party, as well as one of its militant enemies, the PKK.[4]

In late 2016, Konstantiniyye was supplanted by Rumiyah.[5]


The magazine issued four issues, starting from Shaaban 1436 AH to Rajab 1437 AH, before it was replaced by a Rumiyah magazine.
