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

As of late 2016, Konstantiniyye had apparently been supplanted by Rumiyah.[5]
